Poison Oak – ugh!
After a weekend of clearing brush and blackberry canes, I'm enjoying a nice outbreak of poison oak.
So far it's remaining at a moderate level, which is good because I'm pretty allergic to the stuff. Really allergic, actually.
Here's a picture of my face from my last bout with poison oak:
Fortunately, it's not nearly that bad this time (yet). But it's still mighty uncomfortable.
Two questions for this group:
- Any tried-and-true remedies to recommend for treating poison oak rash?
- Any advice on how to remove/kill the plants without herbicides?
