Seriously, those oils can hang around a loooonngg time.
I too seem to attract poison ivy... In the warmer seasons, I might go a few weeks between wearing socks, well, I once got some on my ankle, even though I was wearing socks. A month later, after the first rash cleared up, I got it again, even though I was nowhere near any poison ivy, it was still in my socks, even after they were washed!!

Since your stuff is localized, my guess is poison ivy from an indirect contact. I've read that even years dead poison ivy vines can affect some people. That would be me, and maybe you too.
