Poison Ivy Update

Well Joe has gotten much better his blisters on his arms are pretty much gone. He's still itching but he doesn't have any swelling. Kaiden is also itching quite a bit but we keep Cortaid on which helps a lot. I have to give him Benadryl some during the day which causes drowsiness and sometime grumpiness! Me on the other hand, I think I'm doing the worst out of the 3 of us. I now have it on both boobs and all on my thighs. It starts out as just small spots and then it spreads until all the spot are linked and its just one big welt. I'm itching a lot during the night so I've been taking Benadryl but that sometimes leaves me real drowsy in the morning. I'm not much of a morning person as it is and being even more tired than usual has me a little cranky which causes my patience to run out very quickly. So my short temper and Kaiden's grumpiness has been a little difficult. Luckily my mom has been great and let me get naps when I really need them. My mom doesn't think mine is poison ivy since it just keeps getting worse. I might be stopping by to see a doctor about it b/c I'm so uncomfortable! Well there's my update hopefully the next time I can say we're all completely healed. Keep your fingers crossed!

I'm so sorry that you have all been infected with poison ivy. I can't believe Kalli has escaped it. Let me knock on wood for that comment.

Maybe you should learn from Joe's mistakes and just go see the doctor as soon as you can, maybe he can give you something better to relieve the itching and stop it from spreading. Good luck with that!

Yikes! Sounds to me like Joe got frisky with ya when he got home from playing in the poison ivy. Just kiddin- That stinks that it keeps getting worse! You poor thing! Good luck with it and I hope it clears up soon!

Oh no Robyn, you poor thing! Being itchy is the worst, I would be heading straight to the Doc about this one. Hopefully they can give you something to STOP THE ITCH!!
I hope Joe and Kaiden are feeling better soon too, it's no good that you are all sick and itchy.
Get better soon :-)

For all of you who are concerned I went to the doctor today. She didn't want me to take the steroid shot b/c I'm breastfeeding. But she did give me the steroid perscription which will help clear things up. She even told me its one of the worst cases she's ever seen! I was told by a friend to get this Benadryl spray and it has helped a lot. Hopefully my steriods will kick in soon and we'll be all better. Thanks for all of your concerns! :)

Regarding the comment from the Baldwin's - I had the same thought. They must have been frisky and it was spread that way!!! I just didn't have the nerve to say it. hehe
