    Best cure for that is to soak it in cider.

    Go to the Doctor, he should give you a script for prednisone, that'll clear it up quickly.

    Tree service company trick:

    Keep a bottle of liquid dish soap and a garden hose handy. After contact with suspected poisonous plant, wash affected area immediately with full strength soap.

    ...

    Never go to bed without taking a shower after working in the yard. The oil from the plants you have contacted will spread to other areas of your body. The longer the oil remains in contact with your skin, the worse your agony will be.

    The rash takes about a day and a half to show up (usually).

    Change your vacuum pump oil now.

    I was going to suggest taking some Viagra but I guess that's totally inappropriate.
    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....

    You make it sound like a big problem.



    I think it is probably a small one ...



    Oh, when I was a kid I got poison ivy all over my legs, the farmer who's farm I worked on said pee on it ... Well I did and it went away in a short time.


    So … pee on it …
