Just when I thought the poison ivy was gone I have it again. I couldn’t remember where I could have gotten into it again and Mike reminded me that I cleaned out the flower beds last weekend. He said that he recalls seeing poison ivy in the flowerbeds before and perhaps I touched it and didn’t realize it. That is possible. I did pull weeds at the same time that I removed the dying flowers.
While I was doing it I realized how hot I was and I came in and changed my clothes. That would explain how I managed to get it on my stomach and hips. I have to be the unluckiest woman when it comes to poison ivy.
I heard years ago that washing it several times a day with lye soap would help it go away quick so wish me luck. I am giving it a try.
