I get poison ivy really bad at times. Someone mentioned to me that they used to have the same issue but they were told if you eat a p.i. leave in the beginning of ivy hell season, it basically protects you from the oil. After being informed of this, they do it every year and haven't gotten it. I would love try that except I'd be EXTREMELY nervous of my throat closing up. Has anyone heard of this by chance? .. just wondering

Thanks!
