Unfortunately, because of the weeds I term the "itchy rash plants," we can't even let our guard down when coming into contact with weeds in the yard. So what's a body to do? Learn to identify the itchy rash plants, so you can eradicate them, or at least avoid them! And as this article reveals, you have more to be worried about than just poison ivy, poison oak and poison sumac.

Just my luck. I ran a 10k mud run about two weeks ago. A girlfriend and I decided to cheat a tiny baby bit and cut across this field and it cut about 200 yards out of the race. Well what do I get for cheating…? Poison oak all down my legs.. The worst rash ever! It’s just now finally starting to heal! Thanks for the article, now I know what to look for and I won’t be doing any cheating on my next race!
