My ten year old daughter went to the lake 4 days ago. Her sister has poison ivy, which are blisters, but she has eyes that are nearly swollen shut and hives (red welps) all over her face, neck, chest, back, and private area. She has been given Benadryl and cortisone spray, but it actually seems to be getting worse. Is it a type of poison ivy, oak, or sumac or is it an allergic reaction to something?
