Tips for Avoiding Poison Ivy

During the summer, people spend more time outdoors hiking and camping. For this reason, poison ivy rashes are among the common skin issues treated by dermatologists this time of year. If you’re hoping to avoid this itchy skin condition, then watch this video for some tips on avoiding poison ivy.

Start by wearing long sleeves and pants when venturing into the woods. Also, bring along a poison ivy-specific cleanser if you know that the troublesome plant grows in the area. Finally, avoid touching any bushes or vines that have leaves in sets of 3.

At Swinyer-Woseth Dermatology, our team of experienced dermatologists can treat a broad range of rashes and other skin conditions. To schedule your visit with a Salt Lake City dermatologist, please call (801) 266-8841.
