    Default Dandelions and Bedwetting

    I read when I was younger that coming in contact with a dandelion would cause you to wet the bed on the same night. I'm not sure if it's touching the dandelion or something else.

    Has anyone heard of something similar? How/why does it work if this is true?

    Going to have to say...it's an old wives tale. They don't really make you pee. I ought to know, I used to sit around playing with them all day and I didn't wet the bed.

    Now if you -eat- them, they're a diuretic, which means they make you pee more.

    Wikipedia - in the unconfirmed section :



    Dandelions
    Anecdotal reports and folk wisdom say children who handle dandelions can end up wetting the bed. Dandelions are reputed to be a potent diuretic. English folk names for the plant are "peebeds" and "pissabeds". In French dandelions are called pissenlit, which means "urinate in bed"; likewise "piscialletto", an Italian folkname, and "meacamas" in Spanish.
    Hope this sheds a bit more light on the issue - I assume it's from children touching dandelions and then their mouth without washing hands...

    Thank you; that explains everything. Has a dandelion caused bedwetting for anyone before?

    People actually eat dandelions. That's why they were introduced to North America as a food crop rather than a weed. Not sure how many you need but they sell them in pill form at some supplement stores.
