You mean you don't personally endorse the consumption of a Poison Oak, Ivy and Sumac salad with urushiol & balsamic dressing?

Prednisone is not easy on the body, but it was necessary in this case. I couldn't bear the thought of 3 weeks of weeping fingers.

Avoid sodium on the juice. It makes you retain lots of water.
Prednisone is some nasty stuff, but it works. I had some nerve issues in my neck, and after a week of that, my neck felt better, but the rest of me felt like holy hell. It puts a major whoopin' on your system, that's for sure.

Also be aware that you might get a poison ivy rash from contact with your pets or your clothes. The strangest case of it I've ever had kept appearing on my hands a little worse every morning, gradually diminshing through the day, and then worse again every morning when I woke up. The first time it happened, I couldn't figure out what was causing it, and thought maybe I had mosquitos in my bedroom, or God forbid, bedbugs. Eventually I realized I had gotten urishiol in my bed sheets, and changing the sheets cured the problem. It happened at least once or twice more to me, and changing the sheets worked every time. So even if you don't actually get it on your skin when you go discing or hiking, you might get it on your clothes, and then get it from surface contact with something else. This time of year I mostly play disc golf in light weight long pants, since my local course grows a lot of poison ivy every year. That combined with showering when I get home has kept me mostly urishiol free in recent years. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Yup, very common to spread the oil to the front side of your cars drivers seat, usually from the back of your own legs. Then to keep getting it over and over.
