Woman Allergic to Christmas tree

Nicola ColemanA teacher from South Gloucestershire is scratching her way through the holidays as she is allergic to Christmas trees!

Nicola Coleman from Charfield took home a tree from her local garden centre and only touched it twice - to take it from her car and to put it up.

But within hours she had a really bad rash and had to take loads of cold baths in the night to ease the pain.

At first her doctor thought she'd caught a bug from a pupil, but then he realised the tree was to blame.

Now the tree has been given to Mrs Coleman's sister and she's got a plastic one to replace it - which doesn't make her itch.
