According to several people, my 4 year old has poison ivy on his shoulder. It took a week for the little bumps to turn into blisters, then they formed together into a large rash. I washed his shoulder twice with Zanfel, but the rash has grown larger, from the size of a silver dollar to the palm of your hand, within three days. Now he has little bumps all over his legs that aren't red, and don't form a pattern. Could he be having an allergic reaction to the poison? Or could he be having a reaction to the Zanfel? I put Caladryl directly on his shoulder rash, and gave him a 1/2 tsp of Benedryl tonight. HELP!!!
