Default Crimson Bottlebrush and allergies?

G'day,

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?


Never with a callistemon, but I am allergic to grevilleas, as are hundreds of thousands of people.
