I have a feeling these blisters are from that how do I get it healed up?
from everything I just read you treat it like poison ivy... or giant hog weed
Cow parsnip, a hogweed, has an irritating juice. I'd suggest using the same things used to treat poison ivy and other forms of contact dermatitis. Aloe, calamine, or whatever works for you.
Poison parsnip is a sun activated plant. The sap in the plant is activated in sunlight. It looks a lot like Queen Annes lace but with yellow instead of white flowers. If you get the sap on your skin it creates blisters that can be reactivated any time that you go back out into the sun. Make sure to keep the areas covered when you go outside in the sun and treat it like poison ivy other than that.
Hope this helps
Do these blisters come back everytime I'm in the sun in the same spot or different spots?
