Cold water helps immediately after you rub up against some, but I’m not sure what will help at this point. They’re going to pop a bunch of times despite your best efforts, I can tell you that much.

Dude, that sucks. I hope it heals quick for ya.

Even when I wet wade I wear quick drying pants. Honestly, the very thought of coming in contact with that satanic wild parsnip freaks me out.

And, you can also add Giant Hogweed to the list of things to avoid this summer. It's effects are similar to Wild Parsnip.

The article talks about this nasty invasive spread in New York, but it's also found in a few places in Wisconsin too.

I know I've seen that hogweed before.

I typically get some parnsip burns every year, mainly on my hands due to my carelessness. I typically use calamine, and lots of it. Pop the blisters, dry it out. It scars temporarily, but fades over time.

This Virginia teen had an unfortunate run in with Giant Hogweed.

Along with Wild Parsnip, this dangerous invasive plant has been reported in Wisconsin and Illinois. Be careful out there.
