What Can I Apply to Skin From a Bad Reaction to Junipers?

rbloch added on July 24, 2015 | Answered

I pruned several Junipers in my yard in shorts. Wherever the plants touched my skin, I had a horrible reaction. Poisonous glue like substance seeped into my skin. I have to use my fingernails to remove - not easy at all. This has been a nightmare after 5 years! I have been to 18 dermatologist and none have helped. Any suggestions?

I cannot speak to your reaction to the sap, but recommend covering arms and legs with longer clothing and wearing gloves when trimming plants or pruning.
