I currently have a violent rash that rivals the worst on your site from- get this - EATING DRIED MANGO!
All those of you out there who are sensitized to urushiol, be very careful with any form of mango. The dread U is in the skin and even if you don't touch said skin, you may pick up a dose from the fruit. I got it on my lips and before I realized what it was, spread it about my body by putting vitamin e cream on my face and transferring it.
I once got a rash from fresh mango, but that was long ago, I won't touch 'em. Wouldn't have believed I could have so much trouble from dried fruit and vitamin e cream.
