I came in contact with poison ivy 5 days ago. The rash appeared 3 days ago. It is on my face, arms and wrists. It hasn't been too bad. A bit itchy, but I'm not a scratcher. I got a first "weeping" blister today, but no big deal. I read that on the 5th day it'll peak and then downhill from there. So does it mean day 5 from contact or from appearance of the rash? Also my main question is that should I still bother goign to see my allergist on monday, which would be day 5 of the rash, 7 of contact? Thanks in adavnced.
