Never pop poison ivy blisters! Although they may be painful, an open blister can easily become infected and lead to blood poisoning. The blisters form as part of your body's immune response to poison ivy and oak and are part of the healing process.

If they do break, cover the area loosely with a sterile bandage protecting the wound from bacteria.  In severe cases, you should always contact your doctor.

Products like Calagel Medicated Anti-itch Gel or Tecnu Rash Relief Spray can help dry the oozing from the blisters.
