Yikes. I"ve gotten an awful case of poison ivy all around my right eye. My eye was gunky and very swollen when I woke up this morning. Once I got up and started moving around swelling went down a bit. I then took benadryl and that helped with the itch for a little while.

It now seems to be spreading down my face/cheek. I can call for pregnasone (sp?) in the morning but thought there might be other suggestions. I hesitate to put any kind of coritzone cream or anything similar since it is all around my eye.

Thanks for your help. I sure am a scary site. My friend told me it looked like I lost a boxing match!
