?Poison Ivy?: It is difficult to know what you have without examination. So, if you can handle it, go see your primary care doctor for examination and treatment. If you do not have health insurance, you can try treating at home but it may be difficult. Over the counter medicines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can help to reduce itching. But they can make you sleepy, so avoid driving after benadryl (diphenhydramine) or use it at night only.
