My boyfriend is majorly allergic to poison oak. We used to live in southern California and he used to get it all the time. We now live in Arizona. We've lived here for over a year and have not seen poison oak yet. Although the other weekend we went camping up in the high mountains and we saw what resembled poison oak, growing like an ivy would. Does poison oak or ivy exist in Arizona? He got a rash from some sort of poison oak or maybe ivy. We are sure that we know where he caught it but are not sure if it was oak or ivy. The rash came on extremely fast too. By the next morning he had the rash. Does ivy show up that fast?
