Okay so im gardening with some friends one day, and the next day, all down my arm its intense poison oak/ivy/whatever it may be. i got to the doctor, and get 6 pills for 4 days. its not really helping. then i go to the hospital, and may have a secondary infection. i get an iv, so the nurse comes to my house every day for 5 days.

im just wondering, is it true that the stuff that comes out can't spread the infection? cause the doctor said it could, but all over the internet it says it can't. also, will it scar really bad? im 15 and just so unhappy these last few days. if its long term im going to be so upset!

please help me with your advice, or at least comfort. thanks guys
