    No vaccine available that I've ever heard of, just treating the rash with lotion.

    I, too, am violently allergic to it. I did take shots ( a series of three) early each spring before 'the season'. PITA, but it worked for me. Since I was a kid, I didn't pay much attention to the name, something like RheussTox, but I bet a veteran allergist could help you out. Good luck, and pass the calamine:cool:

    Edited to add Thx, Mr Irwin. I'll look into the pills. Whe the cat goes out and brushes up against some in his travels, and later rubs on me, I get an outbreak that looks like I've been burned with a cigar.
