I could also use advice on how to get rid of this ... and will it cause a rash?

It looks like an odd grope vine to me.

It may be Bitter Gourd (Momordica charantia) which is found throughout most of Central and South Florida. We have an issue with it taking over our property in Sebastian, Fl.

Salt is going to be a little hard on the azaleas.
