Answer

Well...this is true...it is winter but in some regions we have been experiencing very warm weather.

On this poison ivy information site they say it is possible to get poison ivy in the winter if you have exposure to the roots.

You probably already know what I am going to say but...you will need to see a doctor to accurately diagnose your rash. Nobody can tell you what this is over the Internet let alone tell you how to treat it. Do any over the counter remedies work like hydrocortisone cream for the itching? Benadryl? NOTE: Consult with your doctor or dermatologist before trying to treat your rash on your own.

Is it spreading? Have you taken any new medications? Do you have any known allergies? Are you using any new soaps, detegents, or lotions? Have you been exposed to any insects, plants, or animals? Do you have a fever or other symptoms? There are so many possibilities for your rash...they are too numerous to mention. But the thing which most concerns me is that it has stayed on for several weeks. Have you ever had eczema or psoriasis? Does the rash get worse under certain conditions like a very hot shower?

Hope you find out what this is and soon!

Thank you for your question.
