Itchy and scratchy.....

Sunday I decided to actually get out and do some yard work. I have a beautiful flower garden in the front yard that has become the mecca for every type of weed possible. I started pulling weeds like crazy and was pleased with my fabulous weed pulling work. On Monday, I noticed a few cuts on my shin. I didn't think anything of it until it started to itch like wildfire. Then it turned into a horrible looking raised burn. I then found out that it was poison sumac. I have never had poison ivy or any of it's poison cousins. Being pregnant sure does change your DNA in so many ways!!
Now, the poison sumac has slowly started poping up all over my body. The best are the spots on my FACE!! I feel like a meth head because I am itching all the time. So here is my PSA, stay away from this plant!!!!
I took an oatmeal bath tonight. I placed 6 packets of organic oatmeal in my food processor until it was a fine powder and poured it in my bathwater. As of right now, the itching has subsided. Lets see how long it lasts.......

I don't know if it is too late but we got some soap from CVS that you can use after being outside and it gets rid of all poison plant oils. It might help?????
