Poison Oak on Wet Suit??

<< < (2/2)

Summer but especially the spring is when the oils are highest potency and most likely to cause an allergic reaction.

Oh its not a concern at all... it's a fact jack. I'm covered head shoulders knees and toes (and balls and arm pits and everywhere else)... I got it in Sur on Saturday and dove on Sunday too (didn't wash my suit well on Saturday after dive) so maybe my wet suit doesn't have the oil on it anymore, but it was already too late for me...

Nice job Napoleon! 

Kidding, yeah I went through it before dipping into the ocean.  The ocean seemed to wash it off well enough. No issues here.

hahah discovering new worlds and conquering large fishies.

Just got back from urgent care... where in the paraphrased words of Forrest Gump, "They shot me in the buttocks" ... twice. Dang. Feels like an epic charlie horse.
