My memorable experience with nettles was when I was 12 years old, visiting
friends of my parents in Scotland.  I was playing street tennis with a
daughter of their friends when I missed the ball.  I went to fetch it and
plunged my hand into a patch of nettles.  I have no idea what it was, but
the girl I was playing with ran over, grabbed a bunch of leaves from some
plant and rubbed it on my hand and the irritation was almost immediately
abated.  I've always wondered what this obviously common folk remedy was.
