I had gotten a bad case of poison ivy on my arm 2 weeks ago. It started drying up last week then on Friday night I started getting hives around my neck. Woke up Saturday morning and have hives on top of thighs, back of legs, arms, back, feet and fingers. I can not control the itch, have tried oatmeal and baking soda bath, steroid cream, Peppermint and lavender spray, Aveeno and gold bond cream. Also taking 2 Benadryl every 4 hours. no relief!!!

I developed a poison ivy rash about 3 weeks ago. Since then my arm has swollen and I did go to the doctor and they put me on steriods and antibiotics. Now, although the blisters are gone, the area is still red, itchy and a strange circle has developed about an inch out from the original infection. Round patch, white strip, red strip kind of a thing. Do I need to go back to the doctor or is this just the way an infection like this progresses?
