After his fever subside, my 5month old baby starts to have lots of rashes all over him, will it go away or what should i apply? Calamine lotion?

In a young child, with the recent fever especially, I would recommend taking him in to see his doctor...rashes may just be a reaction to the virus, or it could be something more serious, best to have your baby checked!

How do i know when the calamine lotion has dried up my poison ivy rash?

Old wive's tale

Poison_oak
Calamine can temporarily sooth the itching of poison ivy, but it does absolutely nothing to shorten the 10 - 14 days course of any contact dermatitis. Caladryl should be avoided due to the risk to secondary sensitization to diphenhydramine (Benedryl)

Went to park. Burrs thrown at me. Mildly itchy rash on back and shoulders, use Allegra and Calamine lotion, not helping. Respond asap?

Best to ignore

Cortizone
The more you mess with it the more it will mess with you. Ignore it. It should get better no matter what you do. If you have to do something put OTC cortisone cream on it.
