My son was dianosed with posion ivy 8 days ago. Prednisone shot then 5 days on meds. Rash completely clear but itching is still crazy. How long can this last?
Hello and welcome to HCM, You can take an anti-histaminic to control the itching. Itching is caused due to release of histamine in blood. Histamine is released by mast cells in case of allergic reactions. Consult your physician for prescription of an anti-histaminic drug. Thanks and take care Dr Shailja P Wahal
