Question:
Me and my husband went camping and he has poison oak or ivy and we didnt relize it till bedtime. Well later that morning we had sex and we had noticed afterwards that there was a little strip on his penis that was red. Now I'm not sure if it is the oak or if it was just rubbed raw. I'm worried about if I get it and what will be my symptoms. I have never gotten posion oak or Ivy before.

Answer:
On the information available - very unlikely to be poison ivy. Poison ivy leaves can cause an allergic contact dermatitis. The most common treatment for severe contact dermatitis is with corticosteroids, which reduce the inflammatory response, but the area and extent of contact suggests "tincture of time" is all that's necessary.
