Hi Allergy Forum!:)  I need your advice...
 
We just got back from a camping trip (3 days ago) and my daughter has a rash on her forehead that started out looking like a small scattering of pimples.
 
Now it has the appearance of blisters filled with a yellowish fluid.  It has a rough sand-paper feel to it.
 
The thing is, I would not even question it, but for the fact that it is not itching!  I was under the impression that Poison Oak always ithched.
 
My husband has an exteme allergy to it, and I have none what so ever.
 
Is it possible that she has fallen somewhere in between...getting the rash symptoms, but not the itch? 
 
Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light on this.:)

Thank you Mayflower!

It does not appear to be spreading or getting worse, and she does not have any other symptoms...so I am just going to let it run its course for the time being.

I have not heard of Aqueous cream, so thanks for that tip.:)

See you around the boards;p
