What Happens if We Touch the Nettle?

NettleMost of us heard about nettle or stinging nettle. We can see this nettle in fields in village and in the routes of forests.  If we touch the leaves of these nettles we get high rashes and itching sensation on the skin.  Let us know how it’s happening.  The leaves of nettle have fine hairs on them and this is to protect themselves from the animals.  Once if any animal touch these leaves then it never touches the plant again.  When we observe these nettle leaves under microscope we can see slight pipes like needles.  These are like hair to these leaves.  There is poison like substance at the end of these needles. This causes itching on skin.  When this nettle leaf touches the body then this poisonous material goes to the skin and causes rashes.  Earlier, Roman soldiers used Nettle leaves to get warmth to the body in cool weather.
