Ok I will do that. You've been exposed to it but no rash reaction? I got poison ivy all over my leg last year and it never got a rash, I never really thought about it afterwards... 🤔

No, I've never reacted to it. I don't pull it up with bare the most of the time if I recognize it, but I have done so without any rash. I try not to tempt fate though.

I brushed up against some poison ivy years ago. It started on my ankle and gradually creeped up my left leg towards my private area. I used a fork to scratch. Of course it got infected but the scratching felt good. I was in a real mess and itching terribly. I had some calamine lotion but it didnt help.
The problem was that I couldnt go to any doctor or hospital because everyone in the area had evacuated inland away from the coast due to hurricane Floyd. Everything was shutdown! MY LUCK.
After 4 days of scratching torture and little sleep, I finally got a doctors appointment. I got a bunch of pills to take; anti itching pills, antibiotics and a powerful steroid. The doc told me it would clear up in 24 hours and sure enough it did. I was so relieved afterwards, whew!
