After encountering Poison Ivy, Oak, or Sumac, I understand it takes a while before any rash appears, but what about how long to till the itching starts?

To explain, my kids and I recently moved into the country, and we were informed about the various poison plants on the land. Even though, I have told them to stay out of it, my 11 year old ran through it. There is no sign of a rash yet, but she started itching almost immediately. Iím trying to figure out if this is a mental thing since she went through it, or if she is going to break out.

Please e-mail me back about this. Becksdesign@aol.com
