Bit by Poison Ivy
It is the warm season in Pennsylvania at the moment, and this means everyone is out catching up on much needed yard work.
I live in a rowhome, or townhouse, and the weeds behind my yard (in the back alley), have gotten out of control. It looked like a jungle out there!
I went out there and got to work. Thought I did a good deed. I came up with two large black garbage bags full of weeds.
The Creepy Crawler...
A couple of days later, I felt an itch on my arm. I scratched it, and it got worse. Then it spread to my other forearm. Finally, onto my legs.
My initial thought was that maybe the warm season is making my eczema flare out. I scheduled a doctor appointment. He told me it was POISON IVY! Yikes!
I was scared, as I have heard about poison ivy in the past but never experienced it for myself!. Oh my gosh, it is so ITCHY!!
Here is a photo of my forearm. It is shiny because I have the doctor prescribed ointment on it. Hopefully it goes away soon. :-(
Does anyone else have any backyard shenanigan stories to tell?
