Question

Can I give my poison ivy rash to someone else?

Answer

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.

Use Tecnu to remove poison ivy and oak oil from skin, pets, tools and equipment
