I don't understand. In one section of the FAQ, you write that "scratching or oozing blister fluid cannot spread the antigen to other areas of the body or other persons". Yet in the same paragraph, you write that "it may be carried on the fur of pets, clothing, shoes, tools or other objects and then transferred to the skin". Wouldn't that include "other persons"? In other words, is poison ivy contageous or not?
