From all of the information I have read. I believe there is a correlation between the amount of urushiol (allergen from poison ivy) you came into contact with versus the amount of time it takes for symptoms to present. That is why some people erroneously think that scratching the rash spreads it. They are just seeing a more latent rash appear due to a lesser contact with the urushiol.
