Itchy: I feel for you after jus getting over a bout with poison ivy myself! try applying cold to the areas along with over the counter creams. Your doctor may prescribe topical steroid creams to help.

Fexofenadine: Pompolyx = Dyshidrotic Eczema. Causes blisters or itching. It responds to Fexofenadine for itching and topical steroid. Try Allegra (fexofenadine) OTC.
