Hello Doc Got poison ivy or poison oak on my arms what's the best way to get it cleared up? Or is there a shot?

Hello Doc 
Got poison ivy or poison oak on my arms what's the best way to get it cleared up? Or is there a shot?

Depends: When I have a patient with significant swelling around the eyes or a problem body part, a shot of steroid would certainly help clear it faster and help the itching fade. In lesser cases, an oral steroid and topical treatment with a steroid or OTC product like IVY dry would help. If you just keep it clean and don't mess with it fading occurs within 2 wks. ...Read more

Burn on thumb from hot steam. Very red. Looks patchy or maybe "future blisters" (hard to tell) Internet keeps saying hand burns need to be treated differently. What is best treatment and does being on hand change that? Pain is decreasing. Thanks

Burn on thumb from hot steam.   Very red.  Looks patchy or maybe "future blisters" (hard to tell)   Internet keeps saying hand burns need to be treated differently.  What is best treatment and does being on hand change that?   Pain is decreasing.  Thanks

Size matters here: Any burn's seriousness & urgency of treatment depends on how big the wound is, what caused it, and how deep. Typically steam from a tea kettle or hot food will be first or second degree. The area, if small and getting less painful and is not surrounding the whole finger or a joint can be treated like any other minor burn. Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) helps the pain (but is a prescription). Keep clean, protect area. ...Read more
