Steroids are needed. Steroids are needed for poison oak or poison ivy. A doctor will prescribe them after confirming that the rash is really the poison oak type. For bad rashes, oral steroids for several days are use (prednisone, prednisolone). For very mild rashes, creams can be used. A daily aveeno oatmeal bath may help.

The poison oak toxin sticks tenaciously to your skin, and the most important thing is to remove it so you don't spread the rash by direct contact with your baby. Scrub your affected skin with "Tecnu" or other soap designed to remove poison oak from your skin. Don't let the rash touch the baby. Read more...
