Normal is a relative term. For some reason it is not a term my relatives use to describe me.

During my years in England, I never encountered poison ivy (good thing, considering the first time I had it they tried to put me on steroids for it), but they have something almost as bad over there called "seven minute/year itch" or "stinging nettle". If you touch it, it puts these little stinging hairs in your fingers that act rather like fibre-glass... they itch worse than most things you can imagine, and the more you rub at them, the deeper they go. Pretty much the only antidote is rubbing the site of the sting with dock leaves, because soap and water don't always work.

Once, I was working in the garden, and absently reached for some mint on which to chew. I was wearing gloves because I was pulling up a thistle, so I didn't know until too late that what I had grasped was seven-minute itch, not mint.

Has anyone ever encountered poison ivy in England? If it's truly not there, one has to wonder about the shock the first non-Scandinavian explorers must have received upon discovering it.

Ah, Life. Daily, it insists on being itself-- an adder in the blooming heather which may or may not strike at one's heel. Or perhaps a better analogy might be a flowering gorse-bush in a slick, mud-lined depression.

I know in Texas there was stinging nettle that stuff is horible and here in NC we have what everyone calls sting weed i'm not sure if that is it's official name of not but it grows in the rocky streams with shade there are thousand and thousands of microscopic little needles that actually will sting through bluegenes but it only hurts for about 15 minutes. And at least here in the mountains poison sumac doesnt grow. It doesn't like to grow around1500 ASL that is a blessing for me that is mean stuff.
Also for those in the woods that get poison ivy look for some wild touch me nots they typically grow in similar area but they do prefer swampy areas rub the plant between your hands and on the poison ivy affected area immediately this will prevent you from getting a rash, often where one plant grows that is poisonous another will grow in that same area to cure the poison the wonders of nature.
