Does anyone else have issues with dirt/mud making them itchy?

it totally sucks, and it happens to my kids sometimes too when they play in the hose out in the backyard. first i thought it might be the water from the hose, but now they play in the driveway in the hose and they dont have that issue. just now i went to water the garden and there was some dry mud crusted onto where i had to grasp the hose, and now my palm is itchy where i touched it. the worst is when i step in it barefoot and the bottom of my feet are itchy- ack!

just wondering if this is a common thing, and there's not some like, flesh eating bacteria in our mud LOL

  • Not dirt but, certain types of grass makes me itchy.

  • Yep
    I'm either sensitive or allergic to all things nature related
    I ended up with a rash on my calf where I splashed muddy water onto myself earlier this week. I had even gone in and washed it off with soap. If I sit on grass,I get all these red bumps where it touched me
    That's why i joke that i'm strictly an indoor cat,lol

  • Has anything been sprayed on your garden, like fertilizer or pesticides?
