I have recently aquired poison ivy (one week ago) and I am now at the blistery, oozing stage. I have to go to work, so I have been wrapping my arm (thank goodness it is only on my arm) I finf it to be very uncomfortable to have anything touching my arms like a long sleeve shirt. I have been wrapping the areas with sterile gauze and spraying with anti-itch spray.I have been reading that it is not good to wrap PI. Any comments?
