Can anyone please tell me what is the lag time between when you come into contact with poison ivy/oak/whatever and when the itching/rash appears? Is it possible for 10-14 days later to lapse?
My doctor thinks I have poison ivy. I have never had this before. I can only think of one time when I would have had contact. My husband says there is definately poison ivy in the woods and I was clearing out brush back there. But 10-14 days?
