I thought I was crazy. I had poison ivy 2 yrs ago on both hand after pulling down vines and had no clue what it was. Never went to the Dr because they say it clears up in 3-4 weeks. After many months one hand cleared up but the other one 2 yrs later still has something going on. I always have these little water blisters under the skin and they are not raised. My hand will get real itchy and the skin will start to break down and be red raw flaky skin and itchy. It will last a couple weeks and then start to clear up and then start all over again. I havent went to the Dr because I keep thinking that this will be the time it goes away. I dont think the Dr will believe me now. Anyway did you get it checked out and if so what did they say?
