If you’ve done any running in the Headlands, you’ve probably been stung by a nettle or thistle plant.
The stings appear as raised welts, hurt like a mother effer and last for hours. Sweating into the sting only makes it worse. Literally salt in the wound.
My wise mother informed me that to cure a nettle or thistle sting, find a Dock leaf plant nearby and rub the crushed up leaf on the area. Presto change-o, sting all gone!
