In brief: Oral Steroids
When poison ivy strikes in difficult areas such as the privates and the face/mouth area, the most effective treatment is usually to administer oral Prednisone in a slowly tapering course over 3 weeks.
Topical steroids and anti-itch measures are not effective enough to treat this problem in most cases. See your doctor for some much needed relief.
