Q:
What Are the Images and Pictures of Poison Ivy Rash?

A:
Poison ivy rash is an allergic skin reaction caused by direct contact with the sap oil of the poison ivy. The rash often begins after a 12-48 hours delay after exposure and persists for about two to three weeks. The result can range from mildly unpleasant redness to an intense reaction of swelling, blistering, and oozing. (see pictures below)

You can ease the rash and control the itching by applying calamine lotions or making cool compresses. If the rash is severe or widespread, especially around the face or genitals, please go to your doctor’s immediately.
