I just went thru this and the doctor and I decided that my itchy rash probably wasn’t from sawdust. Not sure what caused it but sawdust probably wasn’t the culprit.

The test was really simple. Tape a small shaving of the suspected wood (poplar for me) to an arm for 24 hours and see what happens.

She (the dermatologist) also had me taking an OTC, non-drowsey formula, anthistimine every day. Apparently antihistimines are commonly used to treat itch and rashes.
