Its been three weeks and its pretty much gone but still annoying.

    Thanks fishmanpa (there's 2 fishmans in this thread lol). I'm glad there's somebody who can relate even though its not very nice to experience. Bloody nasty stuff. I honestly thought the poison ivy thing was a bit of a wives tale.

    Funny story to cheer you up, James (and to lower the tone as is my mission on Misc ).

    One of the other managers I worked with years ago told me how he was pretty hammered in a local pub. He was dying to go to the toilet but it was full. He decided, since he was out of it, to head into the back yard and let loose in the bushes. Now, being drunk the bodily control was gone and he ended up in the bushes themselves doing it. Bad mistake. He unzipped, let fly and found he was doing it in nettles.

    Try explaining to the local plod that you are 'relieving the sting' with a dock leaf out the back of the pub

    I hope it goes soon, intense itching is horrible. Definitely calamine lotion to cool it but you can get itch relief creams too. The current extra heat probably won't be helping you either.

    ROFL! So he was basically stood there rubbing himself with a dock leaf?!

    Itching has gone they're just sore now (didn't scratch). Still walking around in lose boxers if I put clothes on it irritates it. I think it's easing up.

    One of those situations Terry where you want rid of the itching but leave the swelling?

    My rash has almost gone. Just some scabbed areas.

    Re: Poison Ivy Rash

    Poison ivy can be hard to spot. My dad's been pointing it out to me for years and I've only just managed to be able to notice it growing in the woods.

    I'm not allergic to it (which can change, so I guess I'm not allergic...yet) but my mom is horribly allergic to the stuff. It can be very nasty. There are lots of lotions and creams you can get to help with it. She also has a special soap she bought to wash with if she thinks she's been exposed, before a rash shows up.

    Thankfully, it's not dangerous, just horribly irritating. And it should clear up soon. Best of luck and I hope you feel better!
