Do you look forward to the nice months ahead, but dread the itchy rash that inevitably comes when you come in contact with poison ivy? 80% of people in the United States are allergic to poison ivy. It is one of the leading causes of visits to dermatology, urgent care, and primary care in the warmer months. The goal of this session is to teach you how to detect poison ivy, prevent poison ivy rashes, and how to treat it when it occurs.
