Enough has been said about the painful, long lasting effects of the stinging
tree but there is a cure. Last time I was stung fairly badly by brushing up
against a stinging tree in Nth Qld I swabbed the affected area with very
dilute hydrochloric acid. Even though this was 4 or 5 hours after the event,
the next day all signs of pain had gone and there was no recurrence.
Try it. It works.
