Sam, maybe you have alergies?

I get red/white spots and itchy skin after
touching grass and many other plants.

However, I can't say it is impossible for enzymes
to cause similar skin problems. I don't have cps
that produce mucilage like a Ping or Drosera, yet.
So, I haven't had the oportunity to try that.
