Myrtle Spurge, plant burns 6 children facesOctober 9th, 2008 - 2:56 pm ICT by Bupha Ravirot
A toxic plaint called ‘Myrtle Spurge’ caused burn to over six girls in Colorado Springs.
The white substance inside the plant ‘Myrtle Spurge’ is poisonous
All the 6 girls said that they were playing in the yard and plucking up the Myrtle Spurge, pretending it could be milk, they squeezed it out into a cup. Poison in the plant made the girls’ lips and tongues numb and burn, their faces got blister and burns.
The parents quickly figured out it was the plant, and some-how the girls had gotten the white sticky stuff all over their faces.
However the girls’ faces will heal with-out any scarring. Their parents are urging other parents to check out what’s in their yards.
