Medium_image Hi can you identify a weed? I just brushed it and I developed large welts, headache and breathlessness. Thanks

The edges seem to have spikes that made my skin burn. I have never had this type of reaction to a weed before.

Answer: Hi Lynda,
Sorry to hear you have a problem with a particular weed.
It looks like it would be in the nettle family which can be controlled by using Zero Glyphosate, and its name is Urtica dioica. Here is some information in this link http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/nettle/controlling-stinging-nettle.htm I hope it helps
