Some years back, I got contact dermatitis from a plant that looked like Poison Oak. The distinct characteristic, possible separating it from other plants, is that it actually had some sort of hairs on it. It was a plant with big, fuzzy leaves. It was something that was nearby that I happened to have grabbed. What a rash that it caused. I know that the physician that reviewed the contact dermatitis thought it was funny. I kinda did. The plant was growing in a pond area, near other trees and shrubbery. So, I'm not exactly sure whether or not that was Poison Oak, Ivy or something else that caused the contact dermatitis. Big, fluffy leaves that look like Poison Oak.
