Warm weather is finally here, and that means outdoor adventures! Whether you’re hiking through the woods, going on a wilderness adventure or just going camping for the weekend, outdoor adventures are always jam-packed with fun. However, there are certain risks associated with spending time in the bush, and the worst is definitely the rash that can result from coming into contact with Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, or Poison Sumac.
These rashes are extremely unpleasant, and the fear of contracting one is very real. However, you don’t need to be scared of these plants! You can easily prevent a rash by understanding what causes the rash. Jim Baker from Extreme Deer Habitat shows us that the cause of the rash is actually Urushiol — an oily allergen. To avoid the rash, you have to remove the oil! Watch as Jim shows us the best way to remove Urushiol — with this knowledge you’ll never fear Poison Ivy again!
