Poison Ivy: Vexing Vegetation
This widespread skin irritant wears many disguises. Read on to learn more about how to identify poison ivy and avoid an itchy, red rash.
Leaves of three, let it be.
Hairy vine, no friend of mine.
Side leaflets like mittens will itch like the dickens.
Despite the pleasant ways they rhyme, these catchy sayings describe not thyme. Rather, they’re folk sayings created to help identity poison ivy, and in some situations they can be useful. An extremely common plant in the U.S., poison ivy grows basically everywhere—except parts of the far west, in deserts, and at high altitudes—and can be found in backyards as well as wilderness areas. But for all its prevalence, it can still be difficult to spot, since the look of poison ivy changes with the seasons and over time, making it tough to identify the plant even with a picture in hand. In its most basic form, poison ivy looks like this: solid green leaves growing in groups of three on a spiny red vine or in a bush. Most often, the leaves end in a single pointed tip, but there are varieties that look like mittens with both a rounded “thumb” and a pointed tip. In the spring and autumn, the leaves may also take on a reddish or red-orange tinge. Sometimes, you can’t even see the leaves—old, mature poison ivy vines look like furry ropes that wind up trees.
No matter its form, the plant is definitely poisonous—sort of. The rash that most people get when they come into contact with poison ivy, either by directly touching the plant or touching people, pets, or clothing that have touched it, is caused by urushiol, an oil that’s found in the plant’s leaves, stems, and roots. Urushiol causes an allergic reaction that produces an itchy, red rash lasting 1–3 weeks. More severe reactions can produce blisters, swelling, or even a high fever. If you happen to come in contact, don’t simply jump into the campfire—wash the area with cold, not hot, water or rubbing alcohol within the first hour. Any later than that, though, and you’re probably in for an itchy rash within the next 12–72 hours. Antihistamines or corticosteroids can help soothe the itching, and some people say that taking a hot shower or spraying the area with a deodorant containing aluminum can help, too. Of course, you can always press your luck: as with all allergens, some people—as much as 50%, according to the Mayo Clinic—are immune to the effects of urushiol.
