Over the years I have had all three. They are all miserable. Dealing with them is the same. Depending on how you react to it. Calamine or ivy dry may work. If severe, don't mess around and suffer with it, get to the Dr. If the oil got onto any of the clothes or bags, and you touch them, yes you can get it. I would wash everything in hot soapy water, but not with other clothes. Maybe even a second washing. From what I have read, the oil can be active for up to 5 YEARS on surfaces. Once I got it from my cat, who had been outside.
