my six year old son stated first grade on 8/29/05 and two days later came home with a rash all over his legs and arms. there is no poison ivy in our yard and there is no areas in the school to contact poison ivy, but the week before school started they spread fresh wood chips under the playground equipment. could there be enough poison ivy left on the trees that were shreaded to cause a reaction? and has anyone else contracted a rash working with garden mulch?
