    Smilax. Not poisonous but definitely irritating.

    You do know that the plant in the upper areas of your picture IS poison ivy, right?

    I have encountered poison ivy many times as a forester and once mild symptoms have become a big time problem over the years. My doctor informed me that symptoms in some people get worse after multiple contacts with poison ivy, not better. so your symptoms are still typical of poison ivy just a whole lot worse. Leaves of three, let them be.
