I doubt it was the mushrooms that caused the rash, but it's not impossible. My vote would be that you've got a case of Poison Ivy/Oak/Sumac. Once you get the oils from those plants on your hands the oils can go anywhere your hands do. Get some calamine lotion and put it on yer ballz to ease the itching. It'll go away within a week.

I've gotta make a joke, sorry... You sure it was the mushrooms and not that hooker you picked up the other afternoon on 5th ave? :wink:

There are no recorded cases of anybody ever being poisoned by touching a mushroom. You have to get them inside you to cause problems.

As Gumby suggested, it sounds more like you've got poison ivy.

Judge for yourself if the rash is bad enough to rate seeing a doctor.

A quick Google search will suggest several treatments. Benadryl and Calamine come to mind.

Happy mushrooming!

if you do have poison ivy/oak/sumac and are particularly allergic to it, you may swell up pretty bad, in which case a doctor would prolly prescribe you some steroids of some sort. My girlfriend's arms swelled up like balloons after we went morel hunting in poison ivy infested woods, she gets it really bad and they give her steroids. If it swells up very much and doesn't go away in a week or so, I say see a doctor. And try as hard as you can not to scratch, it seems that only makes it ooze and hurt and get worse. you might want to buy some tecnu for next time. This stuff is great, you wash with it after you come in contact with these plants and it gets the oils off, often soap alone can't do this. Good luck.

Actually, a really great treatment for poison ivy -- better than calamine lotion -- is to grind up oatmeal in a blender and apply a poultice of it. (Dampen it with water until it's sticky enough to slather on, then slather.)

...Of course, as it's on your balls, this would be somewhat impractical, but for future reference...;)
