    I have a Jasmine on my back fence that has been there for years. I do not break out from it, I do however have a vine near it called a sumac that I am sooooo alergic to. When I get in it I can only get over it by going to the doctor. The rash looks identicle to yours and yes it is the most itchy thing I have ever had. Maybe it is not the Jasmine that got you.

    Alas, if only, as I mentioned, my husband picked the flower and I made the mistake of rubbing it on my cheek . . .

    I've had experience with poison sumac as well, when we lived in Maine, it is nasty stuff; but I can honestly say that Cow Itch tops the cake in horrible afflictions!

    I am so glad to read this, so I can avoid it if I see it. Horrible stuff!

    I got a much more severe exposure to it in Jamaica. I broke through the vine with no shirt on. After the initial pain, I developed thousands of tiny blisters that the next day turned into a huge 10 inch blister.

    Hey there,

    Thanks to your amazing article, I was able to figure out what this bizarre rash is. I've tried every OTC treatment and nothing works, so I'm wanting to try yours. For the doses, did you do 2 500mg tablets (total 1000mg) twice a day for a total of 2000mg, or 500mg twice a day for a total of 1000mg? Same question for the Vitamin E. Was each capsule 400 IU or 400 IU total? Anyhow thank you for the article, I pray that it helps. I'd be happy to mail you back in a few days with my progress if you're interested.
