A study of Rhus toxicodendron (Poison Ivy)

I am starting this new post based upon my personal experiences with Rhus Toxicodendron.

Plant grows all over in USA, Canada and Europe. Very toxic in spring and autumn but still very toxic at all times.

It grows on himalayas but is not potent at all. On the other hand Urticaria uranus on the himalayas is most potent than anywhere else in the world.

Thread would continue. All are welcome to contribute and share.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The picture looks of some kind of Mango plant leaves.

Are you sure this is Rhus Tox.

Definitely poison ivy! (My nemesis!)

I purchased this paperback guide to homeopathic treatment of poison ivy: Homeopathic Handbook for Poison Ivy and Poison Oak
By Joel KREISBERG. Fortunately, I have had no occasion to test it out.

Ms. India, this plant should be respected. Make sure to know a mango tree better so not to confuse with this one.

This is vicious and action is unpredictable.

On the other hand urticaria uranus is vicious too but is much predictable.

Homeopathically also Rhus T.'s action is not predictable but very potent but urticaria uranus's action is predictable but not that potent.

Rhus Toxicodendron action:

But it is never predictable. Can manifest it in any other way.

Typica Urtica exposure. Always this happenes. No matter if one is exposed once or ten times.

On the other hand Rhus Tox. Exposure is no necessary always same. Today exposure may show effect after a week. Or may in in any other dimension.

kuldeep bhayya,

All the above symptoms can be easily aborted with a single dose of Aconite-30, (other medicines are Bell, Apis, Trant, NM ...) when in the initial stages. There are other alternative options also to easily set-off the above symptoms.

There are over 800 mango plant species / variety's, and few mango tree leaves do resemble the leaves under the initial post / question


Photographs can be deceptive and misleading. I presume you are some sort of a retired mech. engineer by profession and you are NOT a authority NOR institutionally qualified appropriately to identify such macro-level technicalties SUCH as 'botany, genetics, pathology, taxonomy, and plant molecular biology'

Scanning / pasting / Quoting from a picture book for self-satisfaction as a hobby / passion is one thing but spreading it as a half-cooked medical knowledge on a health related website is another thing. Understanding the Anatomy of botany is the domain of a appropriate & institutionally qualfified professional. A non-technical-non-medical lay-person is not equipped to understand the anatomy of botany of plants.

To understand such 'PLANT PHYSIOLOGY' or to identify such specific plants / herbs, you need to atleast be a Plant Biologist / Plant Technologist. You are neither. Kindly confim, if you are.

The first picture posted by Kuldeep doesn't seem to be Rhustox.

May we have the benefit of the original url,from which this picture is taken?

'Murthy' :

Kuldeep's first picture, certainly does NOT look like a Rhus Tox plant picture. Only a physical examination can actually determine the truth. Till then show THAT plant and say THIS is RhusTox plant.

The Plant Biologist's / Plant Technologist's, are beating their head at the RhusTox photograph. Hope the original url you requested does not get diverted to his own website url. Eat the cake and have it to.

have you heard this : I know you know I know & you know I know you know.

Dear Neshaindia and Mr. Murthy.

It appears that you both never visited the places where Rhus Tox. and Urtica grow. It grows in the wilderness on USA/Canada?Europe and Himalayas.

Two people who never saw this plant are telling to a person who saw it.

This thread is for peole like you who never saw it. Stay away from both plants dear, since you never saw it so see it from the picture I supplied. For your protection.
