First Aid FAQ's

Can poison ivy spread from person to person?

Yes and no. A rash from poison ivy is not contagious. You cannot get poison ivy from another person’s rash. However, if your skin touches someone or something contaminated with urushiol—the oily irritant found in poison ivy—you can develop a rash if you are allergic.
