Poison Ivy Rash Oozing Yellow Puss

red rash with liquid coming out

When it gets to be Spring and Summer time, along with doing yard work and outdoor activities comes rashes, bug bites, and poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac. It can be hard to determine what a rash or mark can be.

I recently got a rash that puzzled me and I had a hard time finding any information about it. It is pictured below, Along with the redness of the rash, it would ooze out a yellowish liquid that would harden. If I put a bandage on it, it would rip of the yellow scabs when I would take it off. Every time, it would just continue to ooze more of this liquid substance. If I moved around it would cause the "scabs" to pull away from the wound and it would start oozing again.

This continued for about a week before the oozing finally slowed down.
