According to americanskin.org roughly 85% of the population is allergic to poison ivy, sumac, or oak, and about 10-15% are EXTREMELY allergic. If you are a part of the lucky 15% that are not affected, you can move along. If you’re not, (like me) then this video can be a great resource in preventing serious rashes due to these evil plants.
Jim Brauker, Ph.D with Extreme Deer Habitat, explains how to prevent these nasty rashes without using expensive creams from the pharmacy. By using simple household items you can continue to enjoy the great outdoors without worrying about poison ivy, sumac, or oak.
