Poison Ivy, Oak, Sumac - Whatever
I have never been allergic to any of the above, but I cannot say that any longer. My caching this week has been limited to sidewalk and pavement type caches as I have come down with a mega dose of Poison whatever! I think it is poison oak and I know when and where it happened.
I have used Zanfel and it has worked well, but the best thing for me has been Hot Hot showers, as hot as I can stand it! It releases the Histamine that builds up and keeps me itch free for 6 - 8 hours.
I think I have turned the corner on this stuff, but I will never look at poison whatever the same again! Previously no fear, wade right into the stuff, but no more!
Be careful out there and make sure if you place a cache and poison whatever is around the area to indicate so on the cache attributes!
You can call me one Itchy Gob-ler!
I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!
