Around Friday of last week I started digging up my gardens around my yard and we do have poison ivy back there, but I stay away from it. Last Sunday I started to get itchy around my ankles, but I knew I had been bitten by Misquitos so I didn't think to much about it, but since then I have had thes tiny bumps spreading all over my legs. They are not in any particualr order or fashion, they just appear. I get anywhere from 3-7 a night and they ITCH like CRAZY! I have had poison ivy in the past and I know what that looks like, but could I have gotten into some poison oak? Right now it is just contained to my legs and hasn't spread any further. Chalomine lotion and Hydrocotisone cream are not helping and I am digging in my sleep too.. Any help would be gratly appreciated.
