| "Fact"--Rubbing the rashes won't spread poison ivy to other parts
of your body (or to another person). You spread the rash only if
urushiol oil -- the sticky, resinlike substance that causes the
rash -- has been left on your hands".
Sorry, but this is totally
false. After having contact dermatitis from poison ivy numerous
times, and experiencing it spread to virtually every part of my
body over the next 2 weeks, and to my wife, who was nowhere near me
or the poison ivy during exposure, but slept in the same bed, you
really need to get your "facts" straight.
