Abstract

Warm weather is quickly approaching and in the midst of COVID-19 shutdowns, we are all eager to get outside. I will be reviewing the pathophysiology behind one of the most common environmental rashes--poison ivy. This presentation will teach you how to identify and avoid plants of the toxicodendron family, and how their associated rashes are treated should you be so unlucky to come in contact with their leaves.
