i did lean against a tree to urse on that side, but i am not sure as high as my shoulders was directly against the tree, kwim? and i didn't notice poison ivy around. but really didn't look too hard i suppose.
no change in it today, just some more fading. if it were to be shingles...would it eventually blister and get icky? how coudl i avoid speading it? mostly that is what i am worried about with the little kids in the house... i mean we cosleep, breastfeed, share everthing, etc. even if i try to cover it and avoid contact...it seems impossible!
my rash is not terribly itchy, but kinda itchy. feels a bit dry like excema, and burns a bit when touched. here it is a few days later. it seems like there are clear little red bumps. but alot less red. does that seem more like shingles? never had poison ivy before. so i have no idea.

This is EXACTLY what i have had the past 3 days. I have been searching online for something similar to this or what could have caused it and have found nothing, until i saw your post. Mine looks exactly the same and it itches. But i live in NYC and have not come in contact with anything that could be close to poison ivy. There must be SOME sort of explanation this...has your bumps gone away?
Looks like mites to me,
Keep Tea Tree Oil on it, don't scratch. Put TTO or vicks in your nose & ears when sleeping so they don't colonize in those places or they 'll be tough to get rid of.
