Urushiol is an antigen component in RV products [12] and it can cause an allergic skin rash on contact, known as urushiol-induced contact dermatitis [20].
However, the clinical application of RVS has been restricted because urushiol (Figure 1(a)) can cause an allergic skin rash on contact, known as urushiol-induced contact dermatitis in sensitive individuals [19].
* The FDA reports that as many as 50 million Americans are affected by urushiol-induced contact dermatitis (poison ivy, oak and sumac) each year.
