I got into Poison Sumac once, had large bubbles of what looked like Tar on me, itched like mad, worst 4 days of my life.
I've found that Rubbing alcohol helps with my posion ivy itching, put it on when it begins itching and it dries it out and stops the itching.
Here's what sumac did to my elbow. You can't really see it, but it's swelled about 1/8th of an inch high (just the red area), and it felt like carboard. It lasted about a month. Had to scrub it with alcohol until it blead. Then put baking soda paste on it.
I still have scars.

OW! I just itched looking at that.

It was about 2.5" by 2' round. Once it festered up, it didn't really itch or hurt. Just sort of felt like the skin was dying.
FWIH, that sumac, if you burn it, like in a brush pile, and breathe in the smoke, it'll do this to your lungs.

I wonder if it was the same thing my wife got into whilst madly pulling weeds a few years ago?

She got huge oily bubbles on her arms too; the bubbles looked very similar to these (at the 1:04 min mark). So I thought possibly 'Giant Hogweed'?
It came from a bushy area - where all kinds of weird stuff grows - in our front yard !:-0
She still thinks was from Poison Ivy.

I tried uploading some photo's - but the site continually says "The uploaded file is too large" :~\
Even after I've compressed & deleted all file details & properties :~\ And I haven't figured-out or seen a way to resize the .jpg's. ;~\

She had to get prescrip meds. And the oil-filled looking bubbles would burst after several days of extreme pain & itchiness.
We've never seen anything like it, before, or after thankfully.

I kept trying the 'Attach files' button (below to left) > then in Windows Explorer, I'd go to 'Pictures', then select an image .jpg ...which would then show to be actively uploading... before showing "The uploaded file is too large" every time. :~\

But are you saying to click on the 'Insert Images' button ^ (above) instead? I'll try that. Thanks.

Yeah, doing that, it likewise shows: "Oops! We ran into some problems! The uploaded file is too big."

I compressed the .jpg plus deleted all the file property details, but I'm not seeing anyway to resize the file when I right-click in Windows10 :~\
Thanks for tryin to help ;-)

Phones use a different file format to computers
So a 2Mp phone imager looks like a 20Gp image to the computer
SO the first thing is to open the image in a photo application then " store as" or "save as" or "export as" a JPG ( JPEG on better computers )
If the app you are using does basic editing ( most do ) then "resize" to 12" on the longest side of the photo @ 72dpi

Thanks Bert !;-) I'll try that now.

Saved as .JPEG ....but still getting "Oops! We ran into some problems. The uploaded file is too large."

And when I right-click the .jpg file, I do have an 'Edit' in the right-click menu, but when I click on that - it opens the .jpg file in the Microsoft Paint App > where there is a 'Resize' under the 'Home' tab, and a 'Zoom In' & Zoom Out' under the 'View' tab.
But under 'Resize'.... my only options are: 'Percentage' (horiz & vertical - currently at: 100%), or 'Pixels' (horiz & vertical - currently at: 3024 x 4032).

662,736 have died from Covid in a year and a half, how many people die each year from diabetes? Look it

The mind is a very complex thing and no country has done more research on manipulating the mind than the USA. ( sorry not the evil Russians )
A lot of this was sponsored by the advertising industry and boosted by the political parties,
USA citizens will argue this point but they are the most brainwashed people on the planet.
The success of Coke a Cola is the prefect proof of this.

Your mind is basically lazy & always takes the least energy path to any conclusion
Magic is based on this
A classic trick is the blind taste test Coke vs Pepsi .
Better than 90% will always say the first one they tried was the best , even when they are trying the same drink each time . ( try it at home at your next BBQ with whatever brew you want )

Now reading is the most brain intensive method of taking in information ( that surprised me ) , Watching is the next hardest & listening is the least energy intensive.
So the brain prioritizes stuff it hears over the other two.
Visually, you do not consciously see detail so if shown 2 identical film clips with identical dialogue, one being real actors and the other a simplified cartoon , you will retain the cartoon over the actors .
Also the simplier the image the more brain power available to store the message which is why childrens books that work well use flat colour with very simple backgrounds .

Back in the 50's research by the political parties revealed that messages spread word of mouth were retained & believed to be true better than 90% of the time while the principle mass media of the day, newspapers scored a lowly 30% while the glossy journals ( including Playboy ) got near 50% and from then on, the "social influencer" was born.
Back then it was the neighbour hosting pre election dinner parties.
Now days it is face book

the basic assumption is that person is my friend so they will not lie to me while that scientist is being paid to cover up some thing sinister .( implied in the anti-vax cartoon )
OR your friend cares about you & your health while that doctor is just making money out of you , is in the pockets of the pharmasutical industry and can not be trusted , just like the mower dealers mechanics.

Remember Brutis's speach after Ceaser was murdered FRIENDS , ROMANS , COUNTRYMEN
Three words designed forge a bond between the crowd and the guilty
Now look at the opening words of just about every speech given by every politican and a lot of social influiencers
They don't say " I am your friend and I am just like you so trust me ", but that is what is implied and what your brain hears .

Very early in the cartoon they bring up Russia
In the brainwashed minds of Americans Russia = evil so without using the word evil they have implied that the vaccine campain is evil .
And yes most Americans consider Russia the be an evil despicable enemy and communism to be the work of the devil , no other country's citizens think that way. including the South Koreans .

I really can not be bothered to go through the cartoon line by line but line by line it is mostly garbage , quotes out of context , missrepresentations , inunendo & conspiracies.
I might note while they associate the vaccine with fertilizer, one of their "know cures" ivermectin is a drug designed to remove parrasites from the gut of Ruminants not viruses from the lungs of primates and as primates don't have a rumen it is highly doubtful that it will do much for people with Covid -19 although it is being tested at the moment.
Kryptonie strikes again. So don't put fertalizer in your arm but put horse pill in your intestines ? really ?
You could not pay Me 1 million $$$ to get that jab shot. Everyone I know that has gotten it has health problems now. Down the road people will start dropping like Flys sprayed with fly spray. Real research is Your friend not the mainstream news and by done. Alot of Dr's & Nurses are quiting there job, there not getting it because they know. Do NOT TAKE THE HORSE MED IT WILL KILL YOU. Get a GOOD DR.
