Parthenium is growing around Aziz’s house, especially along the fence. When he pulled the weed out, he got an allergic reaction on his hands. At first it was an itch then it got worse over time, later resulting in skin blisters that eventually burst. When he went to the hospital, he was only given a cream to treat the allergy but it did not work. He now uses chemicals to control Parthenium, but this is an additional cost to him.
