I pulled a whole bunch of a viney weed in my yard with five leaves and then my husband saw it and freaked saying it looked like poison ivy. It has five leaves though and this website shows a simlar picture and says it is not poison ivy but the Virginia creeper (we're in VA) but I am still paranoid! Can poison ivy/oak/sumac have more than three leaves? I have washed my hands and arms and used some alcohol antibacterial gel on top of the washing but I am itchy now, probably just from paranoia! Please advise! :)
