Poison Ivy Around My Lip

I've been battling this thing on my arm now for the past couple days, however I noticed that the poison ivy has moved to the bottom & top of my lip...can it go into my mouth too? I think I licked my lips as I was eating my food. I'm putting cortizone cream & calomine lotion...my God when will go away? I think I got it from my dog again...wow this is just unbelievable. And I have a party to go to July 9...how can I make it go away quick??

Re: Poison Ivy Around My Lip

See your doctor to put you on a 7 or 10 day taper dosage of Prednisone. My husband had poison ivy, was put on pred for the taper dosage and it's never come back.

It will always come back otherwise.

See the doctor.

Re: Poison Ivy Around My Lip

My Kids got poinon oak-same thing, First, give you dog a bath , if you think that is where it is coming from. As you you, take benadryl and put hyrocortison cream on it, that should work. Poison ivy is a power substance that is released from that plant. If you touch the plant with your hand and then lets say, you scrath your leg-you just spread it to your leg. Do you out in the country?
