You should call the doctor. It can get miserable in those areas and you likely need something with a perscription if it is all over your 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.
