I am sensitive to poison ivy, if I'm near it I'll get it. My question is I didn't realize I had poison ivy till the next morning. It started on my forearms and now my nose chin some legs. Could it be spreading from objects in my house that I touched the day before? I already washed the clothes I wore that day and my pillow case. How long before the sap will die from the objects? I have two young children and I don't want them to get it.
