I have not been exposed to PI out in the wilderness (i'm pretty sure) but I believe I contracted it from a friend. I've read that it is not contagious from person to person, but I can't explain how I got it. I was around the affected person for about a day, and a few days after, I developed small itchy bumps. Is it possible for a person to carry the oil and infect another person?
