so who has poison ivy right now? head count!
i mean on you, not in your garden. haha. i get it a good 10x a year, since i'm pretty fearless (reckless) and do a lot of hiking. i was pruning a massive amount of poison ivy out of an area i like to hike last weekend, so now i've got a good 5 spots on me. normally i wear a long shirt and gloves, but its hot these days, so i was just wearing a wifebeater. so i have 5 spots on my upper upper arm, almost shoulder, and bizzarely enough, 2 spots on my back. i remember backing up into some, but i guess i forgot to wash there. remember, if you touch poison ivy, wash with COLD water and antibacterial soap, it'll wash most of the oils off, u won't get a rash. if i didn't wash, i'd be covered in it right now. for now, its a minor irritation and an extra few bucks in hydrocortizone's pocket. happy hunting.
