I was exposed at least 10 days ago, maybe more like 2 weeks. I immediately (within minutes) washed with dishwash liquid.

I first noticed it on my arm ... reasonable since that was where the ivy touched.
The rash first showed up last Sunday. But I keep getting new patches. On the other arm, around my waist, on my neck and chest and now even in my pubic hair.

This site says that the liquid from the blisters cannot spread the rash. So where are the new spots coming from? I'm wearing newly laundered clothes.
