The colorful tulips, which are often found in pretty bouquets in the apartments at Easter, are not without danger. The bulbous plant has one or two leaves, a mostly straight stem with a large flower perched on it.
The entire tulip is considered poisonous, although a critical dose is not known. The symptoms are differentiated according to “skin contact” and “consumption”:
- “Tulip bulb dermatitis” with eczematous skin changes
- Increased fragility of the fingernails
- Cracks in the skin and slight flaking
As soon as contact with the tulips is broken, dermatitis heals on its own after a few days. If this is not the case, please consult a doctor.
- stomach pain
- Drop-in body temperature
The information center against poisoning at the University Hospital Bonn recommends drinking plenty of water for small amounts and consulting a doctor for larger amounts.
