The juices are not the Urishol oils they are your body's fluids fighting the poison. After exposure to your skin the Urishol oil/poison sorta bonds with cell proteins and cannot be passed to others or scratched and spread. It was something like 15 min or a half hour...before it would bind to the cells and not be transferable.
Just use soaps to wash off the oils...and wash with soap anything like clothes that may have the urishol still on it..since the oil will not bind to those and will still reinfect/spread for a Long long time...years even.
Just be gentle when shaving and don't scratch cause it will tear your skin and take longer to heal.
