Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

You are going to be OK after eating a small piece of jicama skin. Rotenone is toxic in insects but less I animals. If you eat large quantity of skin you may vomit it.
You don't need to anything about it.

Hope I have answered the question.
