No: Wash the baby thoroughly with soapy water and good rinsing(don't scrubb too hard). You have to develope a contact allergy through repeated exposure so it's unlikely in a very young child. If a dense bumpy rash developes, it is easily treated by your doctor.The rash in poison ivy takes several days to a week to develope sometimes, .

Out of sight: Out of sight , out of mind! seriously though some toddlers are climbers and explorers. Get used to the fact that they need to be supervised at all times! (know where they are and what they are doing.) this is why parents are whooped by their child's bedtime!

Yes: Some skin conditions such as eczema can be worsened by the friction of rubbing against a carpet (just as scratching can make eczema worse) protective clothing or moisturizers such as keri or curel may help. If not, a doctor may recommend a medicated ointment.
