I've joined your "itchy & scratchy" club. Not to your extreme extent though. Pulling thistles yesterday in between rain squalls. Only on the "thistle pulling hand & arm" though. No poison ivy or sumac out there. Must be a reaction to mutant thistle barbs.
Pass the calamine lotion.

@AmiSue !
Morning Glory rash? Really?
I may be a victim. Pulled one up yesterday and rolled it into a ball before pitching it in the pail.

@AmiSue !
We should be neighbors.


Now I am going to get it

@AmiSue I am that susceptible

@btroje yikes!

@MissKathleen that's what i say


How's the blistering today? I sure hope you're not in too much discomfort.

I'm picturing you running through the house naked, scratching furiously like a primate.... screaming; "It burns!!!! IT BURNS!!!!"



I picked some up on my legs, sharing your pain. Break out the Calomine lotion.

@AmiSue that’s a new one to me. Will remember.


Oh I hate that I got into something the other day. Benadryl and calamine lotion and catching it early is the key

@AmiSue When you do it, you do it up well. Hope you're feeling better.


Natural remedies for poison ivy.


Makes me grateful for natural immunity! eeeek! that's looks itchy!


Oh no! I hope it goes away soon! ☹️


Lucky you!!!


Bummer, I've always been immune, so that's nice. I am allergic to at least one variety of pampas grass, I've brushed up against and gotten welts in the shape of the leaves like a photographic negative. We've got giant hogweed here, so far I've avoided contact. The county has warned us that it can cause severe burns and blindness.

Ugh, how awful! Thankfully, I've always been immune but I'm never too confident that that won't change for me. I have some agave that will reach out and zap me good if I'm not respectful enough, so I have an idea of the nastiness you're dealing with... I hope it passes quickly. 😟

Leaves of 3. Leave them be. =0{

Oh crap! Don’t self-infect further. Calamine and keep your hands off.


Hydrocortisone 1% ointment. A little dab on each blister should do the trick. And quickly. It's over the counter so you should be able to get it at any grocery store or wal-mart. Good luck.
