I was working in our yard over labor day weekend and since have a rash that developed on my legs and arms. It initally starts out looking & acting more like a mosquito bite than a blister, and if scratched turns into a leathery area. I did develop a few blisters. I must have recently sensitized to PI, because I know I've had frequent accidental exposures with no reaction (our house is in the woods - poison ivy central).

It's over a week later, and new areas are still starting to break out, just in area of arms & legs. Could I be picking it up from a chair, etc.? or could I still be breaking out 6 days later from the original exposure? Could someone please advise?
