good suggestions thanks - yes I looked up what I could do on the web and tried the baking soda poultice but ice definitely had the greatest effect. It's still a little sore and achy today but getting much beter thankfully. I assume these guys could be found on any type of leafy vegetation so just be cautious - it says on the sites I saw that if the hairs got into one's eye (unlikely) it can cause permanent damage. As for local remedies, well my husband made me drink a glass of lime juice followed by a glass of milk - could't hurt I guess wink
