Hot water no help : Poison ivy is a contact dermatitis that takes 10 - 14 days to clear. Hot water will cause the superficial blood vessels in the skin to dialate making the area redder and if hot enough briefly numb nerve endings. It will not in anyway improve or shorten the natural course of poison ivy. The only treatment that partly helps is oral or injectable steroids, but side effects can be significant. ...Read more

Diagnosed with poison oak on arms and cellulitis on breast. Given prednisone 50mg for 5 days and keflex for cellulitis. Cellulitis cleared up. Poison oak is dried up. Still really red/ itchy. Do I need to give it more time or do I need more pills?

The dry skin will also be flaky & itchy .A moisturizer can help. Unless you have a return of redness, swelling and warmth at the site of the infection it should be stable.

Try to identify triggers to avoid; for more help, see allergist. Good wishes:) ...Read more
