I would suggest doctor visit... I got poison oak really, really bad. Looked like I just walked off sci-fi channel. Bad on face; eyes, nose, neck. It seemed like I had gone swimming in the stuff. It was in places should not have been... Swelling, burning, itching, etc. Steroid shot - usually do when around face. Within hour swelling down! Oral prednisone for 2 weeks. Have less then week to go... Shot Thurs. and within two days out in public and I looked almost normal.
