Heart of Oak

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.
