Poisonwood, also known as Chechen, Coral Sumac, Caribbean Rosewood, and Cedro Prieto, is a  tree found in Africa, Florida and the Caribbean. Its sap and leaves are poisonous to the touch, like poison ivy or poison oak. It causes rashes and blisters that can become serious unless treated. One of the only known cures for Poisonwood is the sap from a Gumbo Limbo tree.
