Is poison oak contagious to other people when you have it?


If the rash-causing oil, urushiol, has not been removed from the skin, you can spread the oil to another person. If you hvave already developed the rash, likely, the oil has been completely absorbed. Also, contrary to popular belief, the liquid that oozes from the blisters of a poison oak or poison ivy rash, will not cause spreading.
