Mango and Poison Ivy
Extremely Sensitive to poison ivy? If so be careful with mango skins! Did you know that mango and poison ivy are in the same botanical family? If you're allergic to poison Ivy you may experience a similar reaction to the skin and vine of the mango. While the mango skin can cause contact dermatitis the pulp should be fine. This is because the fruit of the mango doesn't contain urushiol (the poison ivy allergen).
