Could the poison ivy on the penis would have entered the vagina?

Hi, this is kind of embarrassing but I need an answer without actually going to the doctors. My boyfriend has poison ivy on him penis and balls and we had sex without protection and now my vagina burns when I pee. It s not itchy but I think the poison ivy is now inside my vagina. Can it kill me? Am I going to be okay? Will it go away on it s own if I do?

HI THANKS FOR POSTING YOUR QUERY ON HEALTH CARE MAGIC.

THE POISON IVY WOULD DEFINITLY GET TRANFERRED TO YOUR VAGINA DURING SEX WITHOUT PROTECTION .

THIS CAN CAUSE SEVERE ALLERGIC VAGINITIS.

TREATMENT WITH ANTIBIOTICS,ANALGESICS AND ANTIHISTAMINICS WILL HELP.

CORTICOSTEROIDS CAN HASTEN RECOVERY.

CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR FOR FURTHER QUERIES.

THANK YOU.
TAKE CARE
