burned skin


By Femery

I was gardening the other night and within a couple of hours three burn marks appeared on my forehead and side of my nose, but nothing on my hands. ~Are there plants which burn if pulled up or mowed? The marks are the size as if I had touched my face with my finger? Have you any ideas?



Were you working with Euphorbias or maybe near Hog Weed.?You could have touched your faceor the side of your nose with gloved hands, having handled a plant.
