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. In this Massachusetts General Hospital Blum Center presentation from April 25, 2023, JiaDe (Jeff) Yu, MD, discusses how to detect poison ivy, prevent poison ivy rashes, and how to treat it when it occurs.
This program is a collaboration between the Maxwell & Eleanor Blum Patient and Family Learning Center and Department of Dermatology at Mass General.
The Maxwell & Eleanor Blum Patient and Family Learning Center, commonly known as the Blum Center, is a relaxed and comfortable place for patients, families and friends to find accurate health information with help from trained staff.
