Poison Ivy
#11
Had it since Monday now and it eased up a bit on my arm and stomach, but calves are still pretty bad. I think I've had the best luck with Apple Cider Vinegar, it stings a bit, but works pretty well on the itching.  I'm actually trying to confirm that it's poison ivy that I have. Looking at photos online it appears it can vary quite a bit in the way it effects skin.

If I have to get out in the weeds I have a pair of coveralls that I ware. My kids laugh at me all the time because it could be 100° and I'll have my coveralls on. But thats what I have to do.
Peace.....I haven't read up on it, but I do think Poison Ivy has to run its course - you will get relief from certain remedies, but not be rid of it.....God bless, angeltime Heart

Peace.....another thing that might bring relief is natural goat's milk soap - not expensive.  God bless, angeltime Heart

 And, to top it off, there's a reason Nebraska is called the 'Corn State' and the university mascot is a 'Corn Husker'. Our house is, literally, one block from a major cornfield. The Parish Church grounds abut on a cornfield. This is the Farmers' Co-op last fall during harvest. Not the greatest picture, but those are full sized pickups sitting next to that pile of shelled corn.

LOL It's called 'feed corn' for a reason. It all goes to animal feed or ethanol production.

I'd bet its GMO corn and sprayed with glyphosate as well, prior to harvest.

Yep! They have to be GMO to resist the glyphosate. In fact for an old farm boy, seeing the fields as they grow is weird. All the plants are exactly the same height and the ears are the same distance from the ground, unlike corn when I was a boy, stalks of varying height and ears randomly positioned on the stalks.
