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 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.
I still have scars.
