I GOT IT AUGUST 22. CAME OUT THE NEXT DAY. GOT HORRIBLY WORSE ON MY ARMS IN 2 DAYS. I HAVE LITTLE KIDS AND A BABY SO I WRAPPED MY ARMS IN GAUZE AND BANDAGES IN THE SWELTERING HEAT FOR WEEKS. WENT TO A DERMATOLOGIST AUGUST 30....THE HUGE WEEPING BLISTERS WERE UNBEARABLE. SHE GAVE ME 18 DAYS OF PREDEZONE STARTING AT 60MG. IT WAS HELL SINCE I BREASTFEED AND WAS TOLD NOT TO FEED MY CHILD BUT ONCE A DAY. HE REFUSED FORMULA,MILK,SOY FORMULA AND 3 DIFFERENT BOTTLES. PLUS I WAS SO SCARED OF GIVING IT TO THE KIDS I WAS WRAPPED UP ALWAYS. I JUST FINALLY ENDED THE STEROIDS BUT ON THE SECOND DAY NOW I AM ITCHY AND HAVE WHAT FEELS LIKE HIVES ON MY NECK ,LOWER FACE, ARMS. WHAT IS IT? IT FEELS SIMILAR TO HAVING ALLERGIC REACTIONS ITCHY, HIVES....I CAN'T BELIEVE IT IS STILL POISON IVY BUT WHAT ELSE CAN IT BE? IT IS EVIL STUFF.IT IS SEPTEMBER 20TH. WHAT DOES THE PLANT OIL DO...SOAK INTO YOUR SKIN AND AFFECT YOU FOR MONTHS? THE DERMATOLOGIST SAID IT WAS AN EXTREME CASE ON MY ARMS. THEY ARE NOW HEALED BUT ARE HUGE PATCHES OF WHITE SCARS AND WEIRD DARK SHADOW AREAS...MY ARMS ARE 4 COLORS.
