    Agree with Bobby “There may be some stinging nettle”. The variegated plant looks like an ornamental perennial Persicaria virginina’s cultivar ‘Painter’s Palette. Check out the included link below for further information. Best wishes! https://plantlust.com/plants/10990/persicaria-virginiana-painters-palette/

    There may be some stinging nettle around the plant someone is coming into contact with. The plant at the bottom edge of your picture is perhaps the culprit. Others will help ID the top variegated leaf plant which actually is very nice….hopefully!
