Grows wild all over the world, especially in the middle latitudes where the weather is warmest. The plant is a sturdy weed, which gives off a dusty, sticky exhudation that is a mild irritant, causing rash and itching, in humans. The exhudation is tenacious, so it takes much bathing, usually with an astringent solvent, to get rid of it.
