That's what my doctor told me this morning.

my grandpa wiped his ace with some one time not knowing it was in some leaves he was using. He was out fishing and beached his boat to run into the woods to do his business. Said it was the worst three weeks of his life after that...LOL

Why wouldn't the coach not let him go to the shidder?

Was he trying to "make him tough" by making him hold his shid in or shid in the woods? What an asshat.

I bet they would call in the steroid cream for you. Worth a shot- no pun.

I got it on my lap hog a couple years ago. Wasn’t that itchy but Mrs.07 Wouldn’t touch it for anything!

Fortunately I think I am immune (is that a thing?) to poison ivy. I have never had it, but know I have been in it plenty of times.
