I spent all day yesterday at a bug fair in San Francisco potting up VFT's and 'dews for the kiddies. It was GREAT!
When I got home, I had the usual sunburn all over my topsides, and as I was treating it, I spotted a rash on the underside of my forearms. I had heard of others, some here in TF, that are allergic to sundew slime, and it has always made me itch before, but this is the first time I've seen a rash. I thought I'd share. If you look closely, you can see a couple of spots shaped like the leaves that put them there.
Sorry for the poor quality, camera-phones are hard to work with... and the big camera? fergeddaboutit.
There were more on the other arm, but the pictures didn't come out. Good thing!
A word of caution (mostly aimed at myself): contact dermatitis, AKA skin allergies, should not be ignored or brushed aside. They can stay the same, they can even go away, but they can get worse. The next time I get slimed, there is a rather small chance that it may be worse. I guess this is where my rose-pruning gloves come in handy.
*Another note to self: Put latex gloves over the kidskin before monkeying in the bog! I have already wrecked one pair of these gloves. Guess how?
