Is it possible for bumps to BEGIN to appear almost two weeks after contact?

Two Saturdays ago I came into contact with some poison ivy during a river floating trip. Well, just like clockwork I began to itch the following day. Next came the rashes and bumps and constant oozing, standard Poison Ivy behavior. It lasted about eight or nine days and I kept it tolorable with Band-Aid Gel(Rhuli), Aveeno bath, IvaRest, and the hairdryer method (which by the way is very effective). Now that the main rash and itching have subsided, I am breaking out with, very irritating and itchy-as-hell, bumps between my index fingers. Obviously, I know my fingers probably came into contact with the Poison Ivy, but could it take this long for the rash to appear? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
