    Blisters and redness think it's poison ivy meds not working

    I have blisters and red areas on my shins after I ran the weed eater the other day and I thought i probably got poison ivy from something but none of the meds I have used have taken it away. I've had it for about 5 days now the blisters didn't appear till the second day. The spots are on lower leg by my ankles and have slowly spread to thighs. The area by my ankles is the worst but that isn't really that bad and it does itch.

    Thanks anyone for helping me!

    Call the doctor and hopefully, you will get a video appointment or you would be able to send him pictures. My husand had poison ivy many years ago, and the doc put him on 60mg pred tapered to 0 course for one week. It's never come back.

    Hope you get some relief.
