Contact dermatitis from plants

Posted: 30/09/2013 at 21:49

ITP is extremely rare and I wouldn't expect to see it in two children together.

 Has it faded like a normal bruise i.e. gone from red to yellow to fade? or did it just go?

well it has been known

Photodermatitis caused by something like euphorbia and sun give  discrete blisters. Rubbing against a plant  that causes inflammation would usually  give a more diffuse pattern.

 I get bruised easily, and a pattern like that would have me wondering what I had banged into. When I am diving, the weight belt blocks usually give me bruises on the hips and legs, so that after two weeks I look like I've been beaten up.

with most bulbs I work on the top of the bulb should be positioned 2 x height of bulb below surface. So a 1cm bulb should have 2cm soil on top.

a 4 cm bulb should have 8cm soil on top. Tulips can be up to 6 inch deep.
