About 14 days ago while gardening a thorn of a candelabras cactus pierced my skin and went into a vein which bruised for about 7 days. After 10 days I have started coming out in skin irritation all over (raised white bumps and wheals which are itchy) I have read that this cactus can be poisenous? What should I do to remove these toxins?
