Hi, Over the summer I picked up some poison ivy and I figured I was hyper-sensitive to the poison ivy because it just kept on spreading, even on my scalp. (every inch of my body) It was a horrible itching that I couldn't even sleep without waking up from the discomfort. I used all sorts of creams and anti-itch medicines. pretty soon the scales from the ivy went away but the itch remained. I started getting this hot sensation especially in my face, head and ears. I would get slight headaches and my nose would run once in a while just like alergies. My skin would flare up for no reason at all. Maybe I just barely rubbed up against somthing and it would just swell up. If I wanted to cause it, all I had to do was scratch myself and the puffiness would appear, the itchiness got worse, and my head would get really hot feeling, and stuffy. I finally went to the doctor and he told me it was allergies. I told him I've never had allergies before. He said it could be due to climate change. For some reason I just don't believe it is allergis. I believe it has something to do with the poison ivy that I had. have you ever had anything like this before? How can I get rid of it?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
