|Thanks so much Susan! I have used ivyblock before. It's something you put on before you go out, but for me it rubbed off after a while b/c i was sweating. I finallly broke down and bought the ivyoff stuff online since I had been gardening and knew i'd be in trouble. I used it after seeing a few telltale spots. I was really quite impressed with the results since the spots never turned into my usual explosion. I intend to keep it around.
Good luck to all!!
