Coming into contact with the oil from a poison ivy plant can wreck your camping trip. Poison ivy symptoms include hives or a red rash, intense itching, swelling and red bumps which can turn into large weeping blisters. Blister fluid does not spread the rash, only contact with the plant’s oil.
It is important to see a doctor if you have a severe reaction, the rash affects your face or genitals, you develop a fever or the rash does not improve after a couple of weeks.
