I was at my mom's last Monday helping her with yard work. I didn't know that I was woking in and around poison ivy, until I broke out on my wrist a few days later. Now, one week later, it seems to be all over my legs, and arms! How did it spread so bad? I know I surely didnt touch it that much! It is also on my stomach, and I did not raise my shirt I can assure you! HELP! It itches, nothing I do seems to help! I take 2 bleach baths a day, I use benadryl, caladryl lotion, I even rub ammonia on the rashes with a q-tip. Any suggestions would be greatly apprieciated!
