I have had some type of poison ivy on my face for over three weeks. I can't understand why it seems to go away and then it will come back.

There was a time last week that the rash was nearly gone. I was washing with baking soda and applying rubbing alcohol, taking benadryl and all that. It looked like I was about to beat it, but now.

It has come back although not quite as bad and it has spread to more places on the other side of my face. I simply can't imagine why this is happening.

Is this still the same reaction, or have I been infected again? It is so strange I have not had the reaction anywhere else on my body and I never understood where it came from in the first place.
