My daughter had a poison ivy encounter in the woods behind our house. She is very allergic and did not recognized the vine as it is without leaves at this time. He body was covered. I washed her twice with Zanfel(3 tubes) (it usually works but not this time) We ended up on steroids. She did two rounds and now, new bumps are coming out.
I washed everything that I could think of. One think I did not do is the inside pipes of my jacuzzi tub. Could some of the oil have located there and re-infect her, or should I blame the coming back on the steroids rebound (she did 7 days of treatment)
Do the clorox wipes do a good job of removing the oil?
By the way, this site is the very best one that I have found.

Thank you for any advices or suggestion.
