In brief: Urushiol
Poison oak, poison sumac, poison ivy, and mango contain the chemical urushiol.
Contact with the plant or any object containing the urushiol oil will induce an eczematous contact dermatitis. Scrubbing with soap and cold water will remove the urushiol from the skin if it is done within a few minutes of exposure, before it bonds.
