I got this poison ivy. More than 3 weeks now. The weekend before the last I got Zyrtec and Westcort (some new medicine? kind of hydrocortisone) from the Dr. He promised cure in 5 days. So I stopped the treatment last Thursday. The rash did not come back. Itch is only occasional and bearable. But my skin is chapped and painful. I have been using Vitamin E oil. But it doesn't seem to help. Is this normal? If yes, how long do I have to wait (to appear normal in gym)? Thanks!!
