Itches or burns: What is the rash like? Does it itch or burn? If it developed after gardening 6 months ago, it may be from poison ivy. Make sure that all material having contacted with the ivy gets washed off with laundry soap or else you will end up getting a rash whenever you come into contact with it. Your shoes, gloves, tools etc need to be cleaned. Consider seeing a dermatologist also.
