Poison Ivy

People assume that they don’t require treatment after poison ivy rashes, but let us warn you the consequences can be worse than you would have imagined. If not treated on time, the rashes can spread widely persisting for more weeks and can even become infected.

For this sole reason, you should contact us at the first sign of poison ivy that includes:

  • Itching
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Blisters
  • Difficulty in breathing

The rashes appear in straight lines as this is the way plant brushes the skin. The oil of the plant spreads to the other part of the body using fingers. The severity of the problem depends on the amount of oil that gets on your skin.
At Astoria Skincare, we offer instant relief from the itchiness and inflammation. As the rashes can be examined by eyes, they don’t need to be tested. Just a few simple medicines will work in favor of the patient. It will be a completely hassle-free process and will take just a few minutes to diagnose.
