The continuation of my fight with poison oak! Round 2...
By the way, if you haven't had poison oak, it itches, and you have to refrain
from shredding your skin on a minute by minute basis.
Such a lovely shade of red don't you think? See the black poison oak
blister? That was blood filled but healed just fine like the rest.
These were taken on December 10th. Those lovely poison oak blisters
still need to be popped.
Some skin pealed and healing.
As you can see it has mostly healed and the new skin (pink) is showing. Now
you wouldn't be able to tell if you see my hand.
Everyone keeps asking how long. This last picture was taken on the 15th. I
believe we went to get the tree on about November 27th, with the first signs
of the poison oak blisters on the 3rd with the outbreak showing on the 5th.
So not taking any steroids or other medications it took about 2 weeks to
heal from the start.
Just remember to use the Technu in the beginning and take care of it during
