Yesterday I was helping my friend to shift to a new house.
There was small cactus plant in that house, and I happened to touch it.
A lot of glochids got stuck on to my palms.
I was unable to remove them all and some of hem have gone inside the skin.
What do i do? I am not having any skin irritation but I happened to read
they are poisonous.
Please help
