I don't know how but I guess I recently was exposed to poison ivy. I have small rashes on both arms but a big one on my chin and left cheek. My cheek seems to be spreading and most recently my nose and upper eye brow. As it's approaching my eye I would like to start steroids but am worried because I may be pregnant but will not be able to find out for another week or so. Any ideas about other options that are safe for a mom and possible fetus?
