i have a question about how long the rash appears on the body. i have done much research on this plant. all of them have said that poison ivy rashes arent contagious, but i have given the rash to my girlfriend. she isnt very outdoorsy, so theres only one place it could come from, me. here's the question i want answered, if its not contagious then how does it spread on your body. i mean i'll have it in one spot and then another a couple days later. does the body react differently to the oil at differnt parts of the body? or is it contagious?
