My 40 yr. Old niece went to the emergency room yesterday with a really bad rash in her eyes and on her face and arms. She said she had not been around any poison ivy and the doctor said that it was probably air-born. They gave her some medication and an injection but by this morning it was even worse than yesterday and had spread farther. Is it possible that it is an allergy to something else and not even connected to poison ivy? Everything that I have read is that poison ivy cannot be contacted through the air, only from the resin from the plant. Do you know anything more about this than that? Thanks in advance, Shirley
