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