Staghorn Sumac, it is also more common than the poison sumac which has green or whiteish berries and tends to grow in wet areas.

Gympie Gympie sounds horrendous. Yet another reason to Street clear of Oz.

The Sumac is the non poisonous Staghorn Sumac, it is also more common than the poison sumac which has green or whiteish berries and tends to grow in wet areas.

Poison ivy rash covered my whole body once around 7 or 8. I was also covered in dried, cracked calamine lotion and wasn't allowed to scratch. Miserable.

Steve Tingle, Gympie Gympie AKA suicide plant does look similar to a stinging nettle, but touching it is MUCH WORSE. There are stories (not sure if true or urban legends) of people being badly stung and then committing suicide rather than endure the pain of the stings.

Only giant hogweed found commonly in the UK, and it is a much feared invasive plant. Gympie-gympie looks like our common nettle but the rash only lasts a day or so - found that to my cost only a few days ago while weeding.

I have been susceptible to poison ivy for as long as I can remember. Seem all I have to do is look at it and I'm broke out in a rash. I try to avoid it but its around my house. Sprayed weed killer on it last year, but it came back and even though I thought I'd not touched it, I just got over a bout of it on my arm.
