Mango skin, bark, and leaves contain the same toxic substance, urushiol, as in poison ivy. I was not aware when in the Palm Beach area trying different varieties earlier this summer. Fortunately, I had a good supply of Benadryl nearby. The fruit next to the skin can also contain some of the substance.
