Poison Ivy Symptoms

Our clinical skincare specialists can take care of all of your poison ivy symptoms in Atlanta, GA. Poison Ivy symptoms are identified as a very itchy rash that can be seen anywhere on the body but is most commonly found on the arms, legs, neck, or face. The rash is an allergic reaction caused by contact with specific oil (urushiol) found on the poison ivy plant. This condition of allergic contact dermatitis involves fluid-filled blisters that usually present themselves in a linear pattern. Symptoms of a poison ivy rash can range from mildly unpleasant to very severe with intense swelling, blistering, and oozing. With even a moderate case of poison ivy, your itching may seem unbearable. It is important to know that poison ivy symptoms can actually linger for weeks if left untreated. Olansky Dermatology & Aesthetics has the treatment solutions you need to treat your poison ivy symptoms quickly and effectively.
