Have any of you ever heard of a severe allergic reaction (severe blisters and swelling) from handing Protea's (king, pink mink, and pin cushion) or Tropic freun Heliconia. My sister is extreamy sick and they have ruled our almost everything else the doctors and we can think of. I send her the flowers and after handing the flowers four times in 10 days she developed the reaction. The reaction may be compleatly unrealted but at this piont we are grasping at straws.
thank you

Sorry, but have never heard of such a reaction. Hope she is better now and they have found the problem.
