    Does anyone know what wild plant causes weeping blisters? The old timers around here (central Illinois) call it wild parsnip, but I can't get a description out of them. Yellow topped plant is often the only detail. Anyone know anything about it?

    Sounds like Butter Cup. The plant has small yellow flowers and is quite common in fallow fields and pastures all over the country.

    The plants and flowers contain an irritating toxin that can even blister the mouth of cattle. Skin contact with the toxin is known to cause contact dermatitis and blistering.
