Tomato

DH appears to have had a reaction to touching a tomato plant.  Would that mean eating the tomatoes would be risky?

Not necessarily.  Was the plant treated with pesticides?  Does he normally eat tomatoes without a problem?

So my sister has a friend who has to cover all skin in order to mow the lawn in Maine due to a caterpillar.

Could you have something similar?

No sign of caterpillars. And the plants are in my yard, so no pesticides.

Heís never had problems eating tomatoes, but heís also never previously had problems with the plant. I did say, at least we have Claritin, and Iíll let him use one of my epiís. He actually laughed.
