Well i'm not really allergic to it so I don't worry with it that much, but I don't think there is much to do other than look out for 3 leaved vines and wear long socks like you mentioned.

The best way to prevent poison ivy it to just not throw into the rough, but if you do throw into the rough, just try to step on top of the poison ivy so that only your shoes are touching the leaves. If you do happen to touch it, you should take shower ASAP and apply some of that Caladryl stuff. http://www.amazon.com/Caladryl-Anti-.../dp/B000GCRX3E

I've gotten struck with poison ivy weeks after the fact. The oils were on my bag from a different course and I touched the bottom of my bag and had it on my hands. I thought I was immune to it, but it was not the case. I have a Jack Russell and he is low to the ground and I've gotten it from him as well. Has anyone gotten poison ivy from their discs? I think that happen to me last season, I threw into a patch, and then had it on my hand, which spread to other parts of my body. Poison ivy is no fun.

At one point, I read the oils absorb into the skin at 3 seconds. Plenty of time...
Just glad it doesn't bother me.

Assuming by your nickname, you're a carpenter. Your palms should be thick enough to handle it. Just remember to rub your eye right after.

I wear convertible pants such as Columbia Titaniums or the REI brand. They are great. You shouldnt have any problemo with PI if you are wearing these. Unzip the legs, and you got you some cargo shorts.

For some reason, even when I wear shorts I never get any PI.
