Cute name ain't it? Makes it sound cuddly.
I've had some experience with this now as Craig mentioned. My rash was quite a bit worse than Craig's, but I react to oak a lot worse too, so maybe this hints at it's similarity to oak? Poodle dog rash is dryer than oak in my experience, not getting as wet and oozy. Also, with oak I always notice the itching starting in other more tender places first, typically wherever my hands have been. With Poodle dog, the rash only seemed to start where the plant came in contact with my skin. So with oak i always do a full body Technu scrub and shower, but with this stuff i think its not necessary. Nasty itchy stuff but it was much easier to manage than oak I think. Technu worked for me, the rash on my lower legs stopped itching within a few days of treatment and then two weeks later the rash cleared completely. I ain't scared of this stuff now that I know Technu works, bring it on!
