I eat vegetables I just don't like touching plants growing in the wild.

Probably a good call.

Lots of pleasant plants in the wild:  Impatiens, which usually grows near poison ivy, can lessen the latter's effects (drip fluid from the main stem onto the affected area).

Of course, aloe vera's out there too and lots of good stuff to eat...

As a kid, I could grab it, play with it, do whatever - completely unaffected

Into my 20s and on, I developed the allergy at some point, and have had some nasty outbreaks after contact

I tried the “redneck” treatment after one particularly bad event, because nothing else worked…yeah it was painful, but it cured it within 36 hours. The “redneck” treatment invovled Steel Wool and Bleach…it sucks, but it works, and the ivy rash was so painful at that point I was willing to try it
