In brief: Can take a while

Depending on how severe the reaction blisters associated with poison ivy can take several days or longer to resolve.
The resin on the leaves can really set your skin on fire. Generally one should keep blisters intact but they always seem to rupture. Treating with a potent topical steroid can also help.
