Ya, I am doing the technu-bator myself right now, had it before, I live in the stuff all over my ranch. This latest was planting blueberries and I hit a root i was tugging on with my bare hand and it came apart. I didn't realize till the next morning when i awoke at 4am with the pain and burning what had been growing there before, I had cleared a vine there the size of my arm years ago and the roots were still sending up runners. By then I had touched everything necessary and then some, eyelids and arms now to. It will go back to normal but it is REALLY freaky in the meantime. My logger told me the best cure was bleach, he said "take your knife and scrape down to raw skin and then put a stick in your mouth and pour the bleach on, it works way better than gasoline"...I'll pass given the area. I did a soapplant experiment on my are and it feels much better but just stuck with the ole Fels Naptha laundry soap on the sensitive areas and I am out working today just fine, distracted, but getting it done.
