      Same as deadeyedave08, you don't want to know. To put it nicely I have had it all over my physical being. Here in the south it is EVERYWHERE but I have had it so often that my body had built up an immunity to it.

        We have goat on the farm I live on. The goats eat poision ivy. I drinl the milk. I am pretty much immune to poision. But this doesn't work for everyone. My mom and sisters still get it, but my dadand I don't. I wonder if it really has anything to do with the milk at all.

            I seemed immune to it until I climbed a tree covered with it. Got it pretty much everywhere.

              I don't get poison ivy. I could probably roll in the stuff, but I'm not about to try.

                Like shane, Idon't get it. Caught myself chasing golfballs in it many times and never got it. Guess I'm lucky.

                    I have had it just about everywhere at one time or another. The worst was probably the time when I was a child and broke off a twig, and chewed on it. Mouth, eyes, ears, and nose are the worst. Of course, the place everyone else alludes to is no picnic.

                      My son has had it from his toes to the top of his head, in ears and eyes.

                          Missed poison ivy, but poison oak is common in southern California and I've gotten that three times. Despite the effort to wash in a creek with soap, I missed some of it on my leg and arm, and it eventually spread. It was summer, and everywhere I perspired seemed to be affected. On the first occasion, I was photographing a reptile (a gopher snake) and wasn't watching the vegetation around me. On another, I was crawling through brush on Camp Pendleton. On the last, I stopped at roadside to repair a flat tire on my bicycle. I live in NW Oregon now, and haven't seen poison oak in 12 years, though you can bet I still look for it so I can avoid it.

                            I heard a guy tell of his worst experience, seems he contracted poison ivy so bad that it got on his brain. The only thing that would give him any relief was to think about sandpaper!






                            Gotcha!
