Thank goodness for this article. I can finally rest my mind on how I developed poison oak or ivy living in Los Angeles. I was gardening and landscaping the backyard. I was baffled as to why I started getting red welts with blistering. Looked a lot like poison ivy or oak infection. I was chopping down a lot of wild fig shrubs coming over the fence. This totally explains the drip like infected areas. I did get a lot of the fig sap on my arms and body. I also got a sunburn that day too. So all of those clues have come together here.
