My son has poison ivy on his face and it is now on his lips. What should we do about it and when do you go see a doctor for it?

I have poison ivy it started on my left foot then spread and I have a little on my balls do I have to go see a doctor and how can I make it go away?

I have poison ivy  it started on my left foot then spread and I have a little on my balls do I have to go see a doctor and how can I make it go away?

Suggestions: Poison ivy is a delayed reaction of the skin to the oil of the plant. That's why it looks like it spreads - but it doesn't. Rash just appears at different times depending on when it was exposed. If you have showered since the exposure then the oil is gone. I try to avoid steroids unless wide spread and feeling miserable. Scrotal skin thin and may have larger reaction. See your MD if worsens. http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/understanding-poison-ivy-oak-sumac-treatment ...Read more
