Dermatologist 's  Response
You must have developed contact dermatitis from the plant mentioned by you. It means that you are sensitive for the chemical present in that plant.
Avoid contact with it in future.
You can start oral antihistaminics and topical steroid + antibiotic cream. Meanwhile visit a dermatologist, for proper management.
