I was cleaning up the backyard last weekend. We have a new home and they area in the very back of our yard is wooded with lots of vines and weeds, etc.... I was trying to clean that out and was cutting down lots of vines with thorns in them. Is this poison ivy? I have never had poison ivy before or poison anything. All I know is since then I have had small itches on my legs, almost like chigger bits, but I didn't think chiggers could be out yet seeing today is the first day of spring and last week our weather was in the fourties. I also have very small itches like that on my upper body but behind my ear and on my neck are really irritating itches. Real red and larger but not blistering. And this morning I had very small blister like marks on my hand, but it doesn't itch. Does this sound like poison ivy? Does anyone know what I might have?
