I have to prune large swathes of elaeagnus pungens at work and after leaning against them have come out in itchy spots over my body.could this be from the shrubs or possibly biting insects.Any thoughts

My guess is that a plant would cause a rash where the skin contacted the plant though didn't know that eleaegnus did this.

So I suspect that you have been bitten.

I don't know but you might want to check with your GP as some shrubs do have toxic sap.

Just wonder if it is where you may have been pricked by the spines. ?
