***knocks on wood with ds and weaver***
Me too.. Ive never had a reaction to it. Although now that I have said that publicly, I'll probably get it this summer.

Once you get a reaction, any area that had been exposes and broken out can break out again. My friend, who is very sensitive to the stuff, got into the stuff when he was about 4, and had a bad breakout. Being 4, he had no concept of what was going on, and no sense of self-control. So, eventually, he spread the stuff all over his body, and especially into two very sensitive areas. Now, whenever he is careless and gets exposed, these two areas break out with reactions.
I DO know about poison ivy going systemic. If suppressed by prednisone, the inflammation can kind of go "internal". Then it will break out anywhere it damn well pleases.
I spent a whole summer on prednisone for poison ivy. . .complete with Cushings syndrome because of the suppression of my adrenal glands. I had poison ivy up my rectum!! It was not fun.

**knocking wood along with others**
I do keep an eye out and try to avoid direct contact, just in case. Kinda bizarre that I'm *not* allergic to it, since I have so many other allergies.
**continues knocking wood**
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day.
Don't teach a man to fish. Feed yourself.
He's a grown man and fishing's not that hard.
