OMG Take it from someone that has had it so bad they almost made me a textbook case. Seriously. I went to the emergency room. (I am never sick unless it's on a weekend.) Lol Anyway the doctor prescribed me Benedryl. Oh yeah that will work.
Next day 90% of me was covered with it. I went to the other Hospital. That doctor was so shocked by how I was previously treated. And by my condition. He called all nearby staff to come and take a look. Yes, I was embarrased.
He prescribed me Predisone. Voila! By the next day it was already drying up. The only thing that has ever worked since. Though knock on wood. I have been Poison Ivy free for 3-4 years.
Some Doctors will give u a shot too. It is worth it. Hope you feel better soon. I feel your pain.
Burning brush or campfire wood, the pollination of it in the air, someone elses clothes. I contacted it in early March once. You are right the season does not matter.
