Added 12 Nov 2014:
I am 57 yrs old and have been exposed to Poison Ivy and Sumac since I was 12.yrs old. Last Oct 2013 I started clearing Sumac brush from the roadside for fire prevention.I was stabbed in the leg with a broken sumac branch. That wound has never healed. I have been cut and scraped by branches etc. Due to other circumstances... When my face swelled and I couldn't breathe well and (being an RN) I took a RX of 50mg Prednisone (prescribed for a pig) daily for about 2 1\2 mo. 3weeks ago I stopped the prednisone. I have been washing with Dawn.I am suffering joint pain - shoulder,knee,back and foot- at a 100 on a 1-10 scale. The rash is leaving,I breathe better .Is there any advice or suggestions that could help me recover better.
