I have always been told w. poison oak that the sweating intensifies the itch but it shouldn't spread it unless there is still oil on you or clothing/towels/bedding or open blisters that spread the oil. Cool shower after and constantly wash yourself and clothing/bedding/towels till goes away as it can reappear. Good luck..hard not to exercise o keep commitments!! I found swimming in cool pool is soothing and may even dry up some rash too..and Not contagious to others either.
