I got poison Ivy really bad a few times as a teenager. I was hospitilized for it twice, once for 2 weeks. Someone in my neighborhood was burning it and it got into my lungs and my eyes were swollen shut. I looked so bad when I was brought into the emergency room, the nurses all thought I had been in a car accident. They covered the mirror in my hospital room so I wouldn't freak out when I could finally open my eyes. I haven't gotten it that bad in over 20 years thank god. When my kids would get poison ivy, I always brought them right to the doctor if it was on their face.

Sterilize with vinegar DO NOT USE BLEACH since you rub near your eyes and it is most likely out of habit and that is the last thing you want in your eyes!.

If you havent you really should see a doctor take it from some one who had it so badly on there face their blood vessels STILL are weak and burst often, that was over a decade ago!
