Same thing happened to me. I went to my dermatologist and he explained that the oil is absorbed into the skin and travels through the lymph system so it can pop out later and at a place distant from the initial contact. Also people who are very allegic (me) can have a rash break out from the allergic reaction alone and not just where the plant has touched you. It is an evil plant. I plan some heavy duty Round-Up spraying when I get over this bout.
