Poison ivy


Hey everyone. I'm just looking to see if anyone else has had poison ivy or oak while pregnant. I've had it before but only little dots here and there. I got into some of it while doing some yard work and had a severe reaction to it. I've been in agony the past two weeks from it.

It's mostly drying up now but I am still so very very itchy. My Dr prescribed me a steroid cream. I have also been taking oatmeal baths, cleaning my skin with witch hazel, using ivy dry and calamine lotion, and taking benadryl.

It sucks because I wake up in the middle of the night itching and have to get up to apply something to all of it. I have it everywhere, started on my arms, now on my legs and stomach.

Any other suggestions or am I doing everything I can being that I'm 28 weeks pregnant?

And I'm only this concerned about it because I get married on Saturday and don't want my arms and legs looking on splotchy. Ugh. 😢😭
