Can I get poison ivy multiple times?

When it comes to being prepared for poison ivy season, it’s essential to have knowledge of basic facts. Keeping you safe from the painful consequences of coming into contact with poisonous plants is our goal.

Poison Ivy Risk Factors

Poison ivy rashes are painful and irritating. Anyone can come in contact with the poison ivy oils secreted by this widespread plant. This can be done either directly or indirectly, and you will likely end up with redness, itching, blisters, and swelling. All reactions are caused by varying degrees of allergy to the poison ivy plant. 

While you may have never experienced a rash, you are certainly at risk of one day experiencing it firsthand. There are several factors contributing to the occurrences of poison ivy. 


Poison ivy is one of the most widespread plants throughout North America. It grows and thrives in all U.S states, except California, Alaska, and Hawaii, as well as in all of lower Canada and parts of Mexico. The plant can be found in a variety of forms in each location, such as climbing vines, small shrubs, and ground coverings. 

While some people assume it is only an issue in the wood, poison ivy is a common nuisance in common places. These include backyards, walkways, gardens, and any place where the plant can receive enough sunlight and rain to prosper. 


The other main factor affecting the occurrences of poison ivy is allergies. While some people are immune to the effects of the plant, some people will have a reaction ranging from mild to severe. Up to 85% of people have a poison ivy allergy to some degree.  Roughly  15-25% of people have reactions severe enough to send them to the hospital; however, many people will suffer the painful consequences of poison ivy rash at home. 

Risk Factors

Aside from the location and severity of individual allergies, some people are more at risk for rashes. Young children, who often lack the foresight to watch out for dangerous plants, are more likely to contract a poison ivy rash than adults. Other common at-risk groups are hikers and gardeners. Even with proper training on how to avoid poison ivy, accidental brush ups can happen while going for a hike or tending to the garden without gloves.
