Why You Should Never Burn Poison Ivy (or Oak or Sumac)

skin rash from burning poison ivy

Hopefully you have heard the warnings to never burn poison ivy.

If not, this is what can happen. This unusually attractive young lady burned some weeds, not realizing they were poison ivy.

The smoke landed on her skin and over the next few weeks she went through a nightmare of itching and raw, red skin.

She also had to attend a wedding looking this!

So we can't say it enough: DO NOT BURN POISON IVY, OAK, OR SUMAC!!!
