Has anyone had poison ivy? How long did you have it? I have it now, have had it more than 2 weeks and it keeps spreading. I am taking prednisone. Doesn't seem to be doing anything. Should I pop the blisters? Or leave them alone? Benadryl doesn't stop the itching either. Any advice? I work in a produce market and I am hoping no one notices. I try to keep clean, washing all the time and using Purell.
I got it in my own front yard. I have a pond right by our bedroom window with ground cover around it. I was cleaning the weeds out and didn't know they were poison ivy. Don't know how I got it there. I have also been in the woods by our house so I thought I got it there. So a couple days ago, I was pulling these weeds up again by the pond, and got it worse. Now I know what it looks like!! So I put Round-Up on the whole area. Hope it kills it. RAA
