does anyone here have any experience with allergic symptons after
working with flourishing Crimson Bottlebrush trees?
I read about symptoms similar to hay fever when sniffing the flowers,
but I am more wondering about a large rash after skin contact with the
tree or its flowers. Is that something that others have experienced?
Yes, I have an allergy to Bottlebrush Trees, I have only just discovered
this and I am quite shocked about this as I have been blaming my raised
very red itchy, inflamed skin on insect bites as the beginning of hives
always start with spots like bites. I put the Bottlebrush to the test by
deliberately rubbing a flower against the inside of my forearm to test
if there is a reaction and sure enough next morning I had very itchy,
red, inflamed hives!
are youabsolutely sure the plant is infested with some mite or such.?
