Contact Dermatitis from Mulch?
I have noticed lately that whenever I go out into the garden, I get an itch all over my ankles. I'm wondering if it's from the mulch. I don't even have to step on the mulch, just walk around the garden and check the plants from the lawn and I still get the itching. We've had a lot of rain this spring, I don't know if that would cause it.
I never had this problem before and it baffles me. I can wear wellies, of course, but that gets kind of hot in the summer.
I know mulch can cause allergic reactions from the mold spores when spreading it, like coughing and sneezing, but I never heard of it causing a dermatitis just by walking around it. Anybody else ever had this problem?
