How long would a pt have to have a poison ivy rash or how severe would it have to be for the Dr to suggest Kenalog injection as treatment?

In brief: Poison Ivy is bad

Poison ivy can be treated with I.
M. Kenalog, but I prefer a course of oral prednisone because it does not supress the adrenal gland as long as a Kenalog injection and can be stopped when the rash is gone.
