I have a poisin ivy rash on my feet as usual in summer. I also have a chronic vocal cord irritation which a doctor has confirmed. It's possible I have been exposed to airborn urushiol as I have been clearing the woods of weeds, using a chainsaw, and burning the brush, perhaps some of the ivy. There are other probable causes for the vocal cord irritation such as acid reflux (for which I take medicine/avoid coffee,etc.), other allergies, but could this be part, perhaps the larger contibutor to my problem? This has been a problem for two years almost continuously, worse, it seems in summer, when I work in the brush where I get the poisin ivy skin rashes. Can it cause this problem and stay in my system causing this problem for so long? Thank you
