About 8 days ago i realized i had a few itchy bumps on my arm. I am very allergic to poison Ivy so i assumed that i had contracted it. Although i thought i did a good job of keeping it in check by applying creams and not scratching, the rash quickly spread across my stomach, up my arms, and across my lower back. Although there are a few spots that appear to be poison ivy because of there clustered, swollen pattern, most of the problem lies in individual bumps. How do i know if this is poison ivy or poison sumac?
