]If you happen to find Stinging Nettles (which are a good source of emergency food if treated properly, and make a really interesting wine....)then you might also be lucky enough to find Dock as well. A slightly crushed Dock leaf, rubbed vigorously onto the affected part to spread the juices can alleviate some of the itching and soreness.
Stinging Nettles are also useful for making into shirts--especially if your brothers happened to be turned into swans! Just don't forget to finish all the sleeves, or one of your brothers may be stuck with a wing instead of an arm.
