Poison Ivy………… Leaves of Three, Leave Them Be!

Updated: Nov 26, 2021

If you ever came in contact with poison ivy, poison oak or poison sumac you know exactly the type of painful skin irritation one can experience.  It begins with severe itching of the skin.  Next the skin becomes inflamed and blistering occurs.  In extreme cases oozing sores develop.  Normally poison ivy rash can last anywhere from 1-3 weeks.

Poison ivy is best to be avoided, but if found on property within your control, it should be killed and physically removed to avoid further issue and spread.
