Burning Poison Ivy Rash

burning poison ivy rash

This is what can happen when you burn poison ivy, oak, or sumac: the smoke that touches your skin can cause a nasty rash. Even more dangerous is what can happen to your lungs if you breathe the smoke. You can easily end up in the hospital. So be absolutely SURE that no weeds you are burning are any of these plants containing urushiol oil.
