IVY SUMAC RASHES (BLISTERS)
Poison oak, Poison ivy, and poison sumac grow in woodland marshy areas. Brushing against poison ivy plants can cause a red, itchy rash with swelling, bumps, and blisters. These plants are not poisonous but they have oil called Urushiol that causes blistering and itchy rashes. Even slight contact, like brushing up against these leaves, can cause itching and swelling.
