What's the worst place to have poison ivy?
My vote is the crotch. Sorry I took that one :-P
My daughter would say "The face", she is terribly allergic to poison Ivy and requires a Doctor's visit each time she gets it. After a round of steroids she usually comes out of if unscathed.
When she got it on her face it swelled so badly her eye was closed, and her face became so misshapen she looked like something out of a horror movie. We should have taken pictures and sent it to the studios, see if they could copy the look!!
So that's my vote "The face"
Rhus toxicodendron, so I'm guessing it must be a sumac of some sort, I know it is available as a Bach remedy, presumably for rashes, and it is available as a rub for rheumatic joints. It doesn't, as far as I know, grow wild in the UK, we grow the Stags Horn Sumac, Rhus typhina, as a garden shrub. Worst place, well after falling into a ditch of stinging nettles when I was a nipper in short trousers, I'm with you.
