I live in California and have poison oak before, my symptoms were the same, itching and rash but nothing more. I am a mountain biker and three weeks ago went for the hills, then got out of the trail to rest a little and got under a big three full of poison oak vines attached to it, I took my shoes off to cool them off on the bear ground far from the vines, didn't pay much attention to a root on the ground, next day I started getting the itch on my legs and hands but on the third day I was getting paint all around my left ribs, and wen I touched around the red affected area the muscle under my skin felt numb, the skin extremely painful to wear anything on, in other words like a bad burn, also painful to breath, (sims like it mess up the breathing diaphragm), hard to sleep to the point of scream so here I am on my third week, this is been like a horror movie for me, it's Sims to be getting better.
For those who dare to disturb this plant or it's GROUND domains, let me tell you, this one proof that you do not need to touch it to get sting, and it's not always itch and rash, some times it's PAINFUL.
