Allergy - Online Doctor Chats
User : 2.5 year old female presenting minor pink-red bumps (lines and blotches) on right side of face, right arm, neck, and ankle (worst blotch and intial sighting). She has little itchiness and does not feel pain at any of the sites. She is not allergic to ANYTHING, with the exception of having outdoor allergies during the summer and spring (runny nose itchy eyes is the extent of discomfort). Her father is considerly reactive to poison ivy, whereas I would not get it if I was to roll in it! I'm almost certain it's poisen ivy (my son shows a similar reaction and does not itch at all) but would like a doctor's opinion on the diagnosis and treatment options. Mainly whether or not it's a common symptom of poison ivy to have a rash but little to no itch or discomfort? Thanks.
