    Exclamation handprint rash update

    Phytophotodermatitis

    Yep, that's the technical name. What is it? Glad you asked, LOL.

    I was cutting fresh limes to put in lemonade, had it on my hands, touched Simon and the lime juice reacted when he went into the sun. Isn't that bizarre? Never heard of that before. It will slowly go away in a couple weeks/month. Just thought I'd share in case anyone else has an odd reaction like this.

    I've heard of it before, the touching a child's face after cutting citrus fruit and a rash happening.

    Hopefully Simon will heal quickly.

    I was going to post a nosey thread just for this!! Glad to hear everything came out ok

    That is odd, I've never heard of that before. Good thing to keep in mind whenever I'm using lemons or limes!
