woke up with itching on left arm..3 red blotchy areas I thought they were misquitos bites. I NEVER get poison ivy etc in my lifetime. It then got blisters and started to itch like crazy & spread. I saw a dermatolgist she gave me Clobetasol 0.05 emollient cream which I have been using for a week today. This rash is still red and spreading with small blisters on it. I'm not sure what to do..I had it on my neck and that is totally cleared up but my arms itch so bad I have tried everything no to itch them but wake up in the middle of the night itching them. This doctor had no idea if it was poison ivy or oak but these are raised red patches with blisters and from pictures I've seen of ivy it's more clear? Any suggestions would be helpful.
