It is so easy to pick it up from other plants, reinfecting yourself from garden tools that haven't been scrubbed down with mineral spirits or rubbing alcohol to remove the oils. There is nothing psychosomatic about a physical reaction by someone highly allergic (like me). People usually forget to clean their tools, shoes, scrubbing UNDER the fingernails, etc.
