I've never had Poison Ivy before. We don't have it around our farm/house so I don't even know for sure where I could have even gotten it from. I have an idea and will take precautions but I heard it can also travel in smoke.

Needless to say since I didn't know I had contact, I didn't even know what it was until the blisters were pretty bad. Now I can't get the 2 worse spots to dry up. Any advice? Ideas?

I'm throwing Calamine on it constantly and taking Benadryl when needed.

I bought some poison ivy cream from the breeder I got my goats from. It has jewelweed in it which is what native americans used as a natural cure.
I have some blisters on my ankles just above my sock line which I have been putting it on. Takes the itch away in a few minutes and they are drying up nicely...
