Is it normal to be allergic to this vine? Both my husband and I break out in red itchy rash when we touch it.

Some people are allergic to herbal products made from passionflower, but I'm not sure if this allergy would be triggered by just touching the vine. Many plants do have irritating sap when broken open. It is also possible (if it's not in your own garden) that the plant has been sprayed with a pesticide that causes the reaction. I'm not sure what causes your reaction, but it's probably best to avoid it just in case! Check with your doctor or health care provider.
