This has happened to me as well. I do not know if the lotion is spreading the rash. However I can tell you this: I had a rash on my back that was unrelated to poison ivy in any form and used gold bond to help with the itching. After a few days my rash looked as if it was going to go away and then the next day it got huge and blew up to where I had been spreading the gold bond. I think that I may be allergic to something in the gold bond. Cortizone creams do the same thing to me.
