Question

Why does my poison ivy rash keep spreadng to other areas?

Answer

Urushiol absorbs into the skin at different rates on different parts of the body.  Your wrists may break out a day or two earlier than your forearm breaks out.  It is normal and doesn't mean you have been exposed to the urushiol again.
