Cnidoscolus angustidens Torr.

This nettle is Spanish for bad woman. It's friendly maple leaf appearance will inflict pain on the uneducated. At the center of each white dot is a stinging hair. Hairs occupy the stem and base of the flowers too.

Contact results in extreme pain and contact dermatitis.

Treatment of dermatitis is made accordingly with the particular cause of the disease. Creams that contain corticosteroids, wet compresses and avoiding the allergens and irritants are part of most treatment plans. For some types of dermatitis, nonsteroidal medications may help relieve signs and symptoms. And for all types of dermatitis, occasional use of over-the-counter antihistamines can reduce itching.
