I was riding yesterday and hit some kind of plant right through the inside of my elbow. I can see the path that whatever the plant was go right through that spot where your arms seems to funnel any kind of over hanging vines or plants. Immediatly after it happened it started burning and itching pretty bad. Today its turned into a nice welt and is pretty red.

I've had poison ivy before but that always just itched. This burns pretty good too.
I've ran into stinging nettles too and that just kind of stings for a little bit but goes away.

Part of me is just curious what it was. Part of me wants to know what to do to get it to go away. I put some benedryl on but that actually made it burn more. I'm in Illinois so theres nothing really exotic here.

Anyone got any ideas
