One highly non-recommended way to identify poison oak or poison ivy is to touch the suspect plant and see if you develop a rash later. But unless you are okay with the most extremely itchiest rash, 10 times worse than any mosquito bite, I don’t recommend that method. Below are two videos detailing much more rash-free methods of identifying poison ivy and oak from the experts.
