Hi! Thanks for writing. I'm really sorry, but this free tool really isn't designed for diagnosing plant diseases because I'd really need to see the poinsettia in person to give an accurate diagnosis. My best suggestion would be to take a sample of the affected parts to the folks at a good local garden center or county extension service. The staff should be able to help better after taking a look.
