Poison Ivy itch.
Out with the kids on a cub scout outing that was my chant.
Leaves of 3 . let it be.
Leaves of 4 or more. lick it, rub it on your face and put it down your pants.
Got my first batch of poison ivy this Saturday. Wife decided to pull some Asiatic Bittersweet Vine (very invasive). By doing so she went down the rabbit hole. The other end of that vine was attached to a dead 25' pine tree covered in poison ivy, which the vine killed. When she pulled the vine pulled the pine tree down just enough to overhang our driveway so we can't get out. Before we removed the tree I let her know that we are definitely getting our share this season. Of course we tried to minimize it by taking using some Dawn in a cool shower and followed by a good scrubbing with Tecmu.
i cleaned up a bunch of garbage my autistic son had thrown off the deck into the heavily wooded and heavily poison-ivy infested back yard... i was wearing shorts and crocs. no poison ivy. i am not gonna take a bath in it yet but i'm pretty sure at this point i'm not sensitive anymore.
I'll tell you I don't miss poison ivy. When I had my house in NJ, I must have used 10 gallons of Roundup but the stuff kept coming back because behind my yard was a wild unmaintained area and it would creep under the fence and spread via roots.
Here I am sure there are noxious plants but the mosquitos are so vicious you never even think about wading into the jungle.
Well, update from this end the majority of the inflammation has mostly subsided with a few little spots here and there that have flared up, but (knock on wood) no new spots in the last few days. What a horrid experience - i'm likely going to end up with some scarring on my lower legs due to the severity and amount of skin affected. I was out in the woods all weekend again with the scouts and was definitely eyeing up every plant in the forest with suspicion ;-)
