Hi folks..boy, I have sure learned a lot about PI in the past few days! About 2 weeks ago I noticed the small bumps on my arm. They got really itchy and did the Calomine lotion deal. BUT, the small bumps began to appear on my belly, waist, and legs. I also have a newborn and am breast-feeding. For this reason my DR gave me a steroid cream, not a shot. (I am paranoid this little thing will get infected). What I need to know is, what exactly is the "oil"? Is that the stuff that comes off the plant? Not the same stuff that oozes out of the blister?
