    just a quick question: can u get poison ivy repeatedly throughout the season? if u have it, and it goes away, and u have contact again soon after, can u get it again?

    It's kind of like the situation you have with your mother-in-law bobby...it can come and go away and them come back and then go away again...or just stay forever it seems and never go away.

    oh yes...had it last month and now I have it again...usually I get it only on my hands....unlike you BG..Me thinks we need to send you some pictures of the stuff so you learn to stay away from it. Many plants look like Poison Ivy but they aren't . Poison this year seems to be EVERYWHERE
