Poison ivy on face for 2 months, so far.

I went to my regular nurse practioner for a rash on my chin and nose she told me it was poison ivy or poison something. It is going away but I have had it for almost 2 months.  What should I do?

It's probably a fungal infection, which is very common.  I'd use Lotrimin cream as directed.

Hi,  thanks for responding. Can I use that cream on my face?  Also, what if it's not a fungal infection, will the cream make it worse?
