Eczema: Eczema, in the new, or acute stage, can look a lot like an itchy, weepy poison ivy rash. It is usually limited to a localized area, rather than be spread over a larger area like poison ivy. See you doctor to be sure and to get treatment.

Contact allergy: Poison ivy is essentially an allergic reaction to a contact allergen- in this case, the resin from poison ivy. Thus any contact allergen can elicit similar skin reactions.
