Spent last Thursday up in the hills east of Gaston. Pretty spot but turned out to be full of poison oak.I tend to be susceptible to the noxious weed, so I was fully rain-suited and gloved, but something wasn't covered and a nasty patch of dermatitis turned up on my right wrist by Saturday. But the worse was Sunday, when a puffy redness below my right eye turned out to be more of the damn stuff.
I've tried the usual over-the-counter remedies but this is nastily resistant, and I suspect I will just have to wait and hope for the discomfort to run its course.
Well, bugger. Now I really need to scratch.
