I have never had a reaction to any rash causing plant. (poison ivy,oak,etc) I have been married for four years to a man who is severely allergic to them. This past weekend we cleared brush on our farm and now he is at the doctor getting steroid. I have developed 4 small, itchy blisters on my forarm. This may be a crazy question, but is it possible to "catch" a sensitivity like this from having intimate contact with someone who is highly allergic?
