Pink cure

Poison Ivy

Cooler temperatures get folks outdoors, so keep an eye out for this plant that many people are allergic to.  The plant can grow as a small bush or a climbing vine and it can be recognized by its alternate leaves made out of three leaflets each. Calamine lotion is commonly used to relieve the itch.

Iodine thermometers are used outdoors sometimes in gardens.  Iodine is a solid purple crystal that changes into a pink gas as the temperature rises. The darker the color the hotter it is.
