Post Had anyone else had Skin Blistering from Hogweed

Hi all

When I was trying a new short cut to get to work, something jogged my mind.

When I got across this field, I had to climb over barb wires, got stung by a load of stinging nettles on my foot and came across a hogweed (I didn't touch it) and this made me think about my scout camping holiday. When I came home feeling fine then next day in afternoon I had a big clear blister on my left arm. How this happen a mate in front was trying to knock it out of the way with a big piece of stick but the hogweed broke the stick in half. I don't know if I touch another one or something to get this blister. This blister was painless and had to be popped by my GP, has anyone else experienced a sap from a hogweed before.

Is there a proof that hogweed contribute to Skin Cancer.
