As a kid I was never bothered by PI. I ran all over the woods behind out
place and worked with my uncle clearing out brush along the creeks. I did
that work because my father could not get near the stuff. Then about 20
years ago I came down with a nasty Poison Oak rash and over the next few
years had several more nasty rashes from PO until I learned to identify it.
