Does burning dead poison oak in wood stove put off a poison gas?

Burning poison oak (or poison ivy or poison sumac) can release the urushiol, which is the oily substance in poison oak that many (but not all) people have strong reactions to. Worse, the urushiol will be carried in the smoke from the fire, and it will get into the lungs of anyone who breathes in the smoke. If you think that having poison oak on your arms and legs is bad, just imagine having that poison oak reaction on the inside of your lungs.Bottom line: do not ever burn poison oak.

Why do sunburns itch?

I don't know why they itch exactly, part of the healing process most likely. I do have a few tips to relieve the itch however: A couple days ago I got a moderate sunburn, it wasn't particularly bad, no peeling or blistering. However, after a few days it all of a sudden began to itch EXTREMELY bad. I had eczema as a child so I have a fairly high itch tolerance, but this itch made me feel insane and I would have pulled my hair out it I wasn't too busy slathering my burn with lotion and pure aloe. Neither seemed to help as soon as I released. Here is what did work: Aveeno Anti-Itch concentrated cream that is for use on chicken pox, poison oak and poison ivy -- I'm sure other poison ivy/oak anti-itch creams would work similarly well. I took a breif cool shower to wash off the lotion and aloe and then slathered a thick layer of the itch cream on top. It worked like magic. Within 5 minutes I went from feeling like I needed to go to the emergency room to feeling okay enough to try to sleep. Key point AVEENO POISON OAK AND POISON IVY ANTI-ITCH CREAM WORKS TO RELIEVE SEVERE SUNBURN ITCH!! Hope this helps :)
