Ok, about 5 days ago I was weeding and apparently either rubbed up against or pulled a poison plant - no idea what kind. Next day I got the itching & blisters now. Been using calamine lotion and I can deal with it. It's contained only to my left forearm about an inch long and 1/4" diameter. pretty small but gross looking!

Last night (Saturday) ....me being the genious i am....decided to throw all the weeds into our outdoor fireplace and burn them. NO idea if there was poison in there or not. Now Im freaking out because Im reading it could be lethal to breath in the fumes!

Anyone have suggestions? I did this at about 7pm last night so it's been 24 hours. But I am so scared now...
