Two weeks ago I made contact with poison ivy while I was trimming hedges. I had a pretty severe outbreak on my arms and one side of my trunk.

I was given a steroid shot and that helped immensely(took the swelling down). My symptoms have been gone for 5 days for the most part(I will still itch a little, but getting less and less).

However, I wake up today and the spots that were real weepy and swollen are itching incredibly bad and even swelling.

I thought I was free and clear, what gives?
