Dear Greg, Your plants look exactly like poison oak. Your rash is definitely a urushiol rash. Poison oak has the same oil as poison ivy. You have a poison oak rash. Please take CAUTION removing these plants! You need to wear VINYL gloves because urushiol oil can penetrate fabrics and rubber. Take time to read all the posts here on the last few pages for info on how to safely remove, and take a look at the Control link at the top of the page. Hope you mend soon :)
