Thanks folks. It's improved over night but it stll needs shredding so I'll see what happens next.

Some good remedies, thank you

Can anyone identify this lovely plant?

grab some seed when it's ripe hefty, just sling it on the garden.

Thanks BLT, shredding without full cover-up is a big no.

Been in the same trade, 15 years as a practice nurse. but it all seems a long time ago now.

I think it's already subsiding a bit, I expect I'll survive this one.

Thanks for all concerns expressed folks, I'm made of tough stuff

Thanks PP, there was, and still is, a huge volume of bamboo. I haven't got concerns about this, more an interest in what was responsible. Last time I had anything vaguely similar I knew it was a euphorbia what dunnit.

I don't do allergies as a rule Fishy. I don't think it's an allergy though, more like the direct effect of something on the skin, like euphorbias etc. 

I can't see anything in the blisters fidget and it's rather spread about, it would be several bites, but I did stir up a lot of insects.

Self harming, I reckon that's it. My arms are well lacerated aside from this, and the little bumps of stinging nettles

It will get shoved through the shredder tomorrow, I'll see what that does

Yesterday I attacked this enormous bamboo, several foot across, 10-12foot tall.

to this

and this

leaving only this 

and this in patches on my hands and forearms, little blisters and a lot of red

I want to know  which plant caused it. There was the bamboo, Eleagnus ebbingei, a bit of a lonicera and the usual stinging nettles and goosegrass which have never done this to me.

Any ideas? I have no giant hogweed and there were no other umbellifers involved and no euphorbias

Mystery plant

Might be Fishy but nowhere near a positive ID. It's got the horizontal spread, reddish stems and leaf shape. OK and the leaves are too pale for selfheal.

and me Wayside.

Fishy, did I give you Clinopodium vulgare, Wild Basil, seeds or plants? It looks rather like that
