Accompanied symptoms would include internal bleeding, high fever, and headaches. This would ultimately end in death. The symptoms of smallpox are another example that disease is a visible

It is a condition where the extent and rate of the color loss is unpredictable and can depend greatly on the person with the condition.

The patient tells me he was cutting his hedges on Tuesday, August 25th. He did not realize there was poison ivy in the hedging that he was working on. The following day, he noticed that his left arm was itchy and when he pulled up his sleeve, he saw a couple of red spots. He says that over the weekend, it seemed to get significantly worse. He has lots of red spots. He has some large vesicles. There has been some clear drainage coming from them, as well. In addition, he notices a little bit of swelling. He has a little bit in the upper arm on the left, but nothing on the right arm, a few areas on his chest wall and abdomen, as well. They do not seem to be as bad as his left arm. There has been no numbness or tingling in his arm. He has been trying to keep it covered as best he can. He said he looked up on WebMD and has been using cool baths and calamine lotion, which he does think is helpful. He has not had any fevers, chills, or body aches. No nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea and he is otherwise feeling well.
