Most likely, you're just starting your ordeal. (Sorry) If you have any face involvement (swelling of the eyes) or it is really widespread, get to the doc for a 14 day course of steroids. AND go spend the money on Zanfel; it's the only product that releases the oil from the skin. The poison will keep appearing in different spots at different times, and you may be reinfecting yourself with the oils. Wash your bedding (ALL of it) and anything you can think of that you touched or sat on. Normally, poison gets worse for 7-8 days, then takes another 7-8 days to go away. I am at day 26 and I can still see a faint redness...
