Hello all-- I am writing this for my roommate--- who is living in hell... She was doing some yard work a while ago-- and got poison ivy, that was everywhere. her face swelled up three times its normal size, in her mouth- the blisters turned black it was gross... I have (thankfully) never had (knock on wood) poison ivy. Anyways-She has been to the doctor-- gotten the shots, steroids and other stuff.. but she still has pretty big bumps all over her legs and arms.... she puts stuff on them all the time--- and she says they still itch a little (not as bad as they used to...) She doesn't look as bad but she can't shave her legs because she is scared.. does anyone know what she should do to get rid of the aftermath????? please help...
