Poison Ivy

Be on the lookout for plants like poison ivy and poison oak, which can cause a serious itchy rash when touched or brushed against. Pack ointments, lotions and antihistamines to treat potential allergic skin reactions. Wear long pants when hiking through weedy and bushy areas where these plants may be hiding.
