Poison Ivy while pregnant...

Postby hopefulmama29 » Fri Apr 26, 2013 10:16 am

Anyone ever had poison ivy while pregnant??? Unfortunately, the past several years i've gotten poison ivy at least once each spring/summer. A few days ago, a patch popped up on my thigh. I am 8w2d pregnant. Last year while TTC, i had an AWFUL case on my whole stomach, it was miserable and I eventually took a round of steroids even though I was TTC. I am praying this patch goes away and does not spread, but just wondering if anyone here has any experience/knowledge about this? The poison ivy itself is not harmful to the baby, right?
