I was hiking the other day and I brushed up against a poison oak plant. It took 3 days for anything to come up and it started really small. It was on my cheek and looked like a scratch. Now, 2 days after the initial breakout its huge and my entire face itches. My eyes itch and I am starting to notice other marks around my body. Can I continue with normal activity i.e. exercise, swimming, sweating, sauna, gym? What should I do to treat it? I don't want to take antibiotics and I think I can go without seeing a doctor, I'm not too worried yet. Does anyone have any helpful information or advice for me?
