Poison Ivy Rash for 2022

poison ivy rash knee

This is just one of the rashes this gentleman got as a result of clearing out brush and vines in his backyard. This was in Illinois. By end of day he had little bits of itchy spots. By the next day he had the nightmare you see, and a bunch of others. This is why we created this site: to warn people about poison ivy. Problem is that most of us recognize it by the leaves. But there were no leaves out yet. So how can you tell? One way to to buy the SeeLeaf detection kit and use it to test the sap that comes out of the vine when you cut it.

You can also cut into the vine and let the sap flow for a half hour. If it turns black after that long it is probably poison ivy, but the SeeLeaf test is faster...
