Mike, did you not read my post just before yours. Hives is not part of the poison oak/ivy experience. It is a different type of allergic reaction.

The next post says mango and cashews have the same stuff as poison oak. Close, but not quite right. Mango and cashew trees have an allergen in the resin. But each tree has a different chemical makeup in the resin from each other and from poison oak/ivy, although they are similiar.

The interesting thing is that the resin of mango and cashew can cross react with poison oak/ivy. If you are allergic to one, you will probably be allergic to the other.

And, both the others are DELAYED contact dermatitis, not immediate, like hives, so you would want to stay away from mangos or cashew shells (not imported to the us, and cashews, even "raw" ones are heated to deactivate the allergen if it leaked from shells to nut), to prevent DELAYED dermatitis, but it is possible to get a mild case of hives from cashew from a immediate contact type of allergy.
