Contrary to common belief, scratching or spontaneous oozing of the rash and blisters will not cause them to spread because urushiol is not present in the blister fluid. If the chemical has
not been completely washed off the skin, touching the affected areas and then another part of the body can transfer the chemical and thus the rash.
