Calamine lotion will help with the itch. Also whatever she touched after touching the plant will be "infected" be sure to wash any toys etc that could be involved. For adults I say take a bath in dilute clorox to prevent the spread.. but I don't know about kids... so don't do that...

Wash EVERYTHING she has touched since the first saw the plant. Don't forget her hair and little things like doorknobs and the fridge door handle. Calamine lotion helps. I'm very allergic to it so I take allergy stuff too.

Calamine lotion and Aloe Vera gel or cream.Tea tree oil disinfects and heals skin conditions. Witch hazel helps stop itching and aids in healing.

pgs. 627-631 in the Nutritional Prescription for Natural Healing

Good luck!! What a bummer!!

Hugs for you both!!
