    I went on a field trip when I was in the 6th grade ,I can remember my science teacher telling the kids to rub Jewel weed on themselves to prevent poison ivy . I always thought he was pranking us , It was funny watching 40 kids rip Jewel weed apart and rub it on their legs and arms . Apparently there is a folk remedy but it doesn't work .

    Maybe some type of lotion before you go hiking might work?

    This is definitely true for me. If I get into it, I barely get it and even washing with regular soap prevents it all together.

    I bumped into a Saddle Back once. It was way more of a burning sensation vs poison ivy.

    Trying to figure out how my neighbor got it when I cut some trees down . If this video is accurate it doesn't become airborne. Thinking their dogs got into some and brought it home ?

    Don't I've ever encountered it, but form, if not size, it looks like a lot of other stuff.

    i got it a few years ago after a bike ride. i tried everything. the best method for the itchness was baking powder and vinegar.

    i watched this video a couple of years ago. i clean myself after my bike rides. i haven't gotten it ever since.
