Allergic reaction to agave weberii catcus
how do i treat this rash and burning sensation on my arm and chest?
I am not sure whether the rash you describe is a contact dermatitis to the cactus plant or a secondary infection occurring after the skin was pricked by a spine. You need to show it to a doctor to be sure.
