I was trimming and unknown plant from my front yard and an hour later, I noticed a few small red bumps on my skin. That night it started itching...I woke up scratching my arms. I got on the internet and found this great site that helped me determine where the rashes came from. I tried using calamine lotion...futiley. Then I used my common sense and assumed that maybe some products found in-home would work for drying out the rash and clearing it up. I used rubbing alcohol, Dial liquid handsoap, nasal spray, hay fever medication, and last, but not least...Queen Helene Mint Julip Facial Mask. This combonation worked great and the rash started to heal within 2 days of allergic reaction.
