|I live in southeast Texas and I have had poison ivy, sumac, or oak ... in between my finger and all over my legs for the past 6 months, when it starts to fade away it just comes back worse and full forse. I am in so much pain and misery. I have tried the wash and gel over the counter and when it dries it gets even more itchy. My hands are so swollen I cant wear rings and the burn is out of this world. I am off to the doctor tomorrow. Please let me know if you have some advice.
