Contact dermatitis from plants

Posted: 01/10/2013 at 14:50

Have just had another chat with my daughter who said that the other Mum got around to consulting her GP (not the same one as my daughter's) and told him the story.  He said she shd. go to the hospital (same one) for blood tests (as had my daughter's GP where she started off).  Saw the same dr. at the hosp. who our lot had seen who this time jumped to the same conclusion as waterbutts and told the child to fess up, with no joy, and refused to do blood tests.  My daughter says GD doesn't have a close relationship with the other girl and is pretty sure they haven't been up to anything or harming themselves.  The tree they sat under between games at the netball match, supervised by a teacher, was an oak tree and there were a lot of spiders on the ground.  Maybe they were both bitten by some new species (didn't I read that there was some new infestation of oak trees  from something insect or other which cd. harm humans ?  Can't remember the details but I th)ink tat was in Berks. whereas these 2 live in Surrey.  My daughter is going to speak to the school which hosted the netball match..

You could well be right.  I've asked her Ma to quiz her again about any physical activities such as you mention.  I would expect the hospital to have gone all through that, however.

She has it on both arms, however.

Striped top right handed.  Dunno about the other.  Will find out.  Why?

I'd thought of Chinese burns but you'd have a job doing that at the top of the upper arm.

Come on!  They don't look like love bites ( they are diagonal lines) and I don't think the 2 of them had been in close contact before the marks were noticed.

I agree, except it says that it can follow a viral infection, which they could both have had.  I gather this can cause a lowering of the platelet count but as I said hers were said to be normal so presumably not that.

Bruises are starting to fade in the usual way, starting with the areas which appeared first.

What intrigues me is that the drs. don't appear to have seen anything quite like it before so presumably quite rare.

No, they didn't prescribe anything.

Actually, I should have thought ITP (idiopathic thrombocyopenia purpura) was more likely but she had blood tests and platelets were apparently normal.

It's not an odd question.  I have also read about fish oil causing similar and asked her Ma but she says not.  I think we're all agreed that it doesn't look like contact derm.despite what the doctors say; I've looked at lots of pictures myself.  We could all be wrong, however!
