Got a good sized case going. It started on my lower leg where a large rash appeared. I have been treating it with tecnu, washing constantly with Burt's poison ivy soap, dish soap, bleach. Using calamine for itch and every morning I wake up with a new patch of blisters. I am changing bed sheets and bed clothes evey night. If I am any more careful I'll be in a straight jacket! Why is this spreading? Is it the oil from the blister?
