Well I got it on both hands 2 years ago after picking PI plant up (not knowing what it was. The one hand took about 6 months to heal and the other (2 years later) Still has some water bubbles under the skin that go through cycles of itching and breaking down the skin???? I didnt go to the Dr in the biggining because I thought it would go away. We are military so you have to call in am to get appointments and every time I call there are none left so I still havent had it looked at. I want the Dr to see it in a certain stage when you can see the bubbles good. I dont think they will believe me that it started out poison ivy and hasnt went away. Anyway I'll let you know what they say when im seen.
