Default Crimson Bottlebrush and allergies?

In article ,

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.

Most likely it was a grevillea or you met a caterpillar.
