A friend and I spent all Memorial Day weekend hiking together. We were side by side GeoCaching for 3 full days, walking through obvious Poison Ivy patches, etc.

He is covered head to toe with rash, starting the day after exposure. He even tried treating himself in the field. I on the other hand have not a single patch of reddness, irritation or itchy'ness.

Can anyone explain this please?
