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.

Default Crimson Bottlebrush and allergies?

Probably pointless to post in a thread this old, but what the heck. I grew up in central California, and there were a lot of crimson bottlebrush trees in my city. The only time in my life that I have ever broken out in a large blistery rash was on two separate occasions when I was exposed to pollen from these trees. On the first occasion, I stood directly under one for 20-30 minutes, waiting for a bus, and on the second occasion, I brushed up against a flower cluster on a short tree that was overgrowing a narrow path. On both occasions, the trees were in full bloom. I think it's the pollen that makes me break out. I found this thread while looking for information on similar plants that I might be allergic to, since I moved to a very different growing zone a while ago, and haven't thought to look before. I don't know if this is helpful, but it can be a relief to know that you're not the only person with that kind of reaction.

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!

You send three replies within five minutes to a post that's seven years
old?


Still on a server after 7 years wow...



OK.

Sorry to hear of your allergy.

Usenet as it's supposed to be - not the version Google is pre-empting,
removing the technology hurdle of finding a server and setting up an account
and packaging for the hoi polloi.

Google have your usenet, email, phone and/or tablet operating system (?),
youtube uploads, web search history and geographical search history. How do
you quantify a soul? When is TMI actually TMI?

I do not use Google in it's various (nepharius) forms. Unfortuately I was
given an iphone4.
Don't use utube and use duckduckgo as my search engine.

I have several of this species, and if I work in the garden in that area, or brush past them, I break out in hives, extremely painful and last for up to 10 days. My 2nd last episode was a trial after the 1st reaction cleared up. Sure enough I broke out again, currently recovering.
