Poison Ivy

A rash from poison ivy, poison oak or poison sumac is caused by an oil found in these plants called urushiol (you-ROO-shee-all). When this oil touches your skin, it often causes an itchy, blistering rash. Visit our local Urgent Care Clinic in Oklahoma City  to treat poison Ivy.

If you have any of the following, go to the emergency room right away:

  • You have trouble breathing or swallowing.
  • The rash covers most of your body.
  • You have many rashes or blisters.
  • You experience swelling, especially if an eyelid swells shut.
  • The rash develops anywhere on your face or genitals.
  • Much of your skin itches, or nothing seems to ease the itch.

What poison ivy looks like

  • Each leaf has 3 small leaflets.
  • It grows as a shrub (low woody plant) in the far Northern and Western United States, Canada, and around the Great Lakes.
  • It grows as a vine in the East, Midwest, and South of the United States.
  • In spring, it grows yellow-green flowers.
  • It may have green berries that turn off-white in early fall. 

What poison oak looks like:

  • Each leaf has 3 small leaflets.
  • It most often grows as a shrub.
  • It can grow as a vine in the Western United States.
  • It may have yellow-white berries.

What poison sumac looks like:

  • Each leaf has a row of paired leaflets and another leaflet at the end.
  • It grows as a tall shrub or small tree.
  • In the Northeast and Midwest, it grows in standing water in peat bogs.
  • In the Southeast, it grows in swampy areas.
  • Often, the leaves have spots that look like blotches of black paint. These spots are urushiol, which when exposed to air turn brownish black. Before urushiol hits the air, it is clear or a pale yellow.
  • It may have yellow-white berries.
