"I own property in NC and am cutting grass and weed eating once a month in the summer. I was skeptical at first because I can look at poison ivy and get it on me. I figured it can't hurt any more than the steroid shots I receive due to the outbreaks i get from weed eating poison ivy. I took it in the winter as instructed and to my surprise it really works. If I am exposed, my skins reactions is NOT as extreme as I usually get. Meaning I don't have to go to Urgent Care for a steroid shot. If you are skeptical, go ahead and buy a bottle. Take it exactly as instructed. I'm sure you will not be disappointed.
