Hi Judy :) It sounds like you had Stinging Nettle growing in your beds. Poison Ivy and it's urushiol friends have no thorns. If you do an internet search for images of Stinging Nettle you will most likely find your culprit. Stop using the Neosporene. It usually makes plant contact rashes worse. Your rash should clear up much faster than poison ivy. Use an ice cube rubbed on the area, or very cold damp cloths for the itchiness. That works best. All rashes itch worst at night because it gets warm from lying in bed. [email protected]
