All my friends and I were playing hide and seek in the pines and tussled a little too close to the poison ivy - it came home with me as an adopted friend on my hands and clothes.


My brother & I always got it bad when we were kids - eyes swollen shut, 75% of our bodies in a blistered rash. We tried every remedy we would hear of - jewelweed, calamine, oatmeal, rubbing alcohol, clay, benedryl, 1/2 pound of salt, you name it, we tried it.
