In brief: Like burn treatment

The juice of wild parsnip in contact with skin in the presence of sunlight can cause rash, blistering, and discoloration (phytophotodermatitis).
This is not an actual allergic reaction, but more like a burn. Treatment is by protecting the area to decrease the chances of infection, and using meds like Motrin or advil (ibuprofen) for pain and inflammation. Doctors may recommend otc Hydrocortisone cream.
