Glad you figured out the mystery!

It's actually a known phenomenon to be affected by PI as a result of burning it. (I didn't know from the OP that a campfire had been part of the day.)

My mother had that very badly, some years before I was born, and warned me about it. In about 1950, my parents were clearing their building lot, and they burned a pile of brush. There ended up being PI in the brush, and my mother was very sick for several days from breathing the smoke (PI lesions in the mouth, nose and throat).

Actually, many more years ago than I care to admit, there was a Boy Scout advisory--probably in Boys Life, which warned about poison ivy being carried by campfire smoke.
