    1. The sudden realization that the vines the weedeater is joyously pureeing and spewing all over you is, indeed, ivy ... of the poison variety.

    Me too! I really think I can just LOOK at the awful stuff and break out!

    Being the paranoid one that I am, I finished the weedeating as fast as I could (like 15 more minutes worth) and used about half a bar of soap in the shower [​IMG] Hopefully I got to it soon enough!

    I recall my Ex doing that while weed whacking in shorts. Even though he washed up fast he still developed large blisters and later scarring on his legs.

    I hope you don't have any problems from your "Fun"!

    I have it BAD all up and down my legs before. Fortunately I was wearing long pants (we use the weedeater without the guard, would be way too hazardous in shorts), but my arms and face were bare! I'll know in a day or two [​IMG]

    Ummmm that one doesn't fall in my definition of fun! Panic maybe...

    Watch touching those clothes! If you don't need them, I'd trash them. If you have to keep em, wash them alone and follow up with a cycle with no clothes soap and bleach in
  8. First off this is why you should always wear long sleeves and jeans or long pants when weedeating as well as someform of face covering when dealing with any vines oh need I forget eyes and ear protection as well as gloves and a hat, Just in case it is poison of some type in them vines.. That is all please resume your scratching and Oatmeal bathes.....

    Sorry to hear this I hate poison Ivy and this is how I found out about dressing liek a fool when weedeating I was covered head to toe with it Yeah don't wear sandleswhen doing it either....

    Quote:Yep Your from PA we are the ONly people who say weed whacking and we do it in shorts that is how I found out not to do it like that.

    [​IMG] Sorry you got in poison ivy and I hope you got it cleaned off in time. [​IMG] I have never gotten poison ivy but lots of my friends have. One of my ex bfs took me hunting with him and he had to go use the bathroom. Took him like ten minutes and I was wondering if I should go look for him when he comes up with the palest face I've ever seen. He just says we have to go home NOW. So we went home and he wouldn't tell me what was wrong the whole way. I found out the next day he squated in some poison ivy and used it to wipe his butt! [​IMG] [​IMG] He didn't notice what it was till he stood up to walk away. It took forever for it to go away. So if you do get it remember it could be much much worse. [​IMG]
  10. Wow does that bring back memories. I was weedeating a ditch bank, in shorts and the bank was covered in poison ivy. It was nice and hot that day so I was sweating and my pores were wide open. Worst case I have ever had.
