I contacted poison ivy in my garden - I wen tin and washed with soap and water within 15 minutes of the exposure. Two days later I was breaking out- it was on my face so I went to my Dermatologist. She gave me 10 days of steroids. When my decreasing dosage got down to 1 pill a day I started breakingout again except this time - all over the place! I'm
perplexed why I would continue to break oput after 10 days of meds- has anyone else ever experienced this?
