Lichen allergies

    Anyone experience any lichen allergies?


    I'm wondering because I have been having itchy eyes and sneezing lately, roughly in the same time frame in which I have been bringing lichens into my home. I had severe allergies when young for which I took shots, but I haven't had problems for decades. Roger down!

    Some lichen substances can cause contact dermatitis, eczema and skin complaints that include redness and itching.
