Hi, I'm Drew. I believe I got some poison oak on a search & rescue mission a couple weeks ago, and your website has been very helpful in my self-diagnosis.

However, my reaction didn't occur for at least a week and a half after exposure. Is it possible for a reaction to take that long? I don't recall ever having poison oak before, so I have nothing to compare it to.

Thanks a bunch,

P.S. I have found that running my arm under hot water soothes the itching for an extended period of time.
