I don't THINK poison oak leaves have dust, I know the rash is spread via the oil on the leaves. Yet, the oil probably can be spread through the air, as it does when poison oak is burned. I'd definately tell him to go to a doctor right away to at least get it checked out. It could potentially get very serious if it's not treated, especially if it is developing internally.
