Customer Question

5 weeks ago I was working in someone else's yard, and must have brushed up against poison oak. Everything I touched that day, including keys/car/clothes,etc has been washed. It was localized to wrist and arm. After 1 week it began appearing in other places. Doctor prescribed steroid shot/pills and antibiotic because one area looked like cellulitis. A subsequent doctor(dermatologist) gave cortisone cream. Spots are now discolored but no itch or swelling in 5th week. However, 1 week ago a new rash started on right hip. And now new small bumps on belly and left buttocks. What is going on?
