Rash In a Mirror

poison ivy rash in a mirror

"Clearing out blackberry bushes. I had a long sleeve shirt and jeans on. After clearing some bushes it got cold so I put my jacket on over the shirt. Later took the long sleeve shirt off and put the jacket back on. There must have been a ton of the oil left in the jacket sleeve that I wore for the next three days in a short sleeve shirt... bummer."

Lesson learned: clothing can transfer the oil to your skin. 

This rash has a nasty leathery quality to it. 

And he get a lot of extra credit for the well-done mirror technique.
