We are on a barrier island in SC - a very jungle-like humid and hot climate, and over run with creepers and vines. My wife has been suffering badly for two weeks now after an afternoon cutting back greenery. Which plant is the culprit? Cannot easily identify any particular plant, although i have found a definition that says poison ivy can have up to nine "leaflets" is this true? A neighbour was similarly afflicted, he identified the plant in picture #7 as the offender. Help, we need to identify the problem to remove it (i am especially worried about our 3 yr old) or just get rid of everything...
