What is Poison Ivy?

Poison Ivy is a plant that is well known for causing itching rashes when touched. If you ever had a rash caused by poison ivy, then you will agree that it is not fun at all. Some over the counter medicine creams such as Cortizone-10 will help relieve the itching, but if for some reason the rash does not get better after a few days then you need to contact your doctor immediately.
