I have poison ivy. I went camping and I accidentally hiked through it. Read the details.

It is red and splotchy and very, very, very, very, very itchy. what do I need to put on it (if anything)?

Calamine Lotion or Itch Cream. Neosporin won't help the itchiness, but will clean up the infection.

don't wait next time this happens wash it with soap fast the sooner you wash the better because poison ivy has a liquid on it which causes the rash.
