    If it is ivy i'd make a soapy water mix and wash the wattles with that. Then I'd put some calamine lotion on it lightly. It sucks up oils so it might soak up the ivy oil. If that isn't the problem then I don't know what to do.

    i put aloe and vaseline mixed on it and the right wattle seems to be getting less swollen. They are warm!
