Poison Ivy and Summer Rashes
Whether hiking through Fontenelle Forest or working in your back yard, be aware of contact with the three-leafed plant that can cause an itchy rash- poison ivy.
Poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac are three varieties of local plants that can cause these rashes when a person comes in contact with the oily resin (urushiol) found on the leaves and other parts of these plants. Over 80% of people have a rash-reaction to urushiol.
