What should i do? i have poison oak on my penis, its very itchy, and swollen. I went hiking and must of got the oils every where because i have some poison oak on my chin also. Anyone know a really good ointment to reduce itchyness and swelling? I kno bleach is supposed to stop the spreading but im not using that near my genitals...
No don't use bleach! Wash head to toe with a good strong soap and hot water, and throw out any clothes/tools you were wearing when you got this. It can stay on object for a very long time.
Washing will take care of any urushiol oil left. I had poison ivy on my ****** once and it was unpleasant, but I just had to laugh every time I looked at it, because it was swelled up to like 3 times it's normal size! I should have taken pics!
Your problem will go away on its own, but see a doc if it becomes unbearable, if you have any trouble urinating or if you think it is getting infected.
