Depends on the rash: The odds are good that you have poison ivy if a) you were exposed to poison ivy and b) you are allergic (like most people) to poison ivy. It is impossible to me to guess if your rash is poison ivy without seeing pix of it. Whatever rash you have, go to your doctor to have it looked at. They might prescribe topical medicine or steroid pills to help.
