8/10/2012 Caller recently broke out in hives and is trying to figure out what caused it. He had a wasp nest in his tractor and used the Wasp Killer product inside the tractor about 1 week ago (8/9/2012). He thinks he used the garden spray a day or 2 after that but is unsure. Caller had no direct contact with either product only that he rides the tractor. Caller cannot say exactly say when the hives started but guesses it was 24-48 hours after use of the products. He developed welts on his buttocks, thought they were flea bites at first so he treated his dog with Advantage. The hives spread to his arm, belly and back over the course of this week. He took some antihistamines last night and which relieved some of the bumps and the itching but has not resolved them completely.

The information contained in this report is based on self-reported statements provided to the registrant during telephone Interview(s). These self-reported descriptions of an incident have not been independently verified to be factually correct or complete descriptions of the incident. For that reason, information contained in this report does not and can not form the basis for a determination of whether the reported clinical effects are causally related to exposure to the product identified in the telephone interviews. The differential diagnosis for a skin or allergic condition of this nature would include multiple potential etiologies which, in addition to this product, include such factors as plant allergens, insect bites, heat rash, mold, food, infectious pathogens, medications, dietary supplements, etc.. Target allergy testing would be required before labeling this product as the causative agent. Also, the skin reaction appeared to start on the patient's buttocks which would be the an unlikely area of contact with the pesticide product.
