I went to the doctor today. I had poison ivy about 2 weeks ago on a small place on my elbow and shin. They have since went away but the patches of rashes have appeared everywhere. I couldn't sleep because of the itching. I tried oatmeal baths, benadryl, benadryl spray, cortisone cream, technu and nothing helped. Finally, at my wit's end I went to the dr. He gave me a steroid shot and said it should take care of it quickly. He said I was having an ID reaction with dermagraphitis. I have never experienced anything like this before. How terrible.
