Good point. That made me think of another reaction I
have had. 
The cut flower roses from Ecuador (the most popular
right now) have always made my hands itch all over. 
This is not the rose but the spray as I can smell (and
see it) all over the leaves. And if I am not paying
attention and I get stuck by a thorn and the
spray/chemical gets into my system, ouch!!! That hurts
for the rest of the day.
