For those suffering with poison Ivy (Just thought I would share this as I am currently covered with it!) you can use sweet-fern or Jewelweed to get rid of it. (Crush the leaves and apply to the poison ivy)
Avoid Hot Showers/Baths. Although they relieve the intense itching, they also open up your pores and allow the poison ivy/oak or sumac to spread further.Here is further information on Jewelweed.
Spotted Touch-Me-NotAn extremely common flower in wet, shady areas, blooming from June to frost. The pendent, orange-yellow flower, speckled with red hang like little jeweled cornucopias. Speckled red-orange and pure-yellow varieties.
The smooth leaves grow on succulent stems. The seedpods become spring-loaded as they dry; exploding at a touch and scattering the seeds – hence “Touch-Me-Not”.
