    Mix pure honey (not processed) with a little bit of baking soda. Make a thick paste and rub it on the affected area. Hope it helps - poison ivy sucks!!!

    Re: may day .. SOS * Poison Ivy * remedy needed

    Although probably not Recomended by any Doctor
    A Friend of mine used to Scratch it Wildly
    till it was all open,
    then Coat it with Bleach.

    He swore by it for stopping the itch.

    I Never asked to see his arms up close,
    So I Don't know if there were Scars or ?

    I see Someone suggests it here also

    Re: may day .. SOS * Poison Ivy * remedy needed

    Sorry about you getting the Posion Ivy, usually this time of the year it is from digging that you get it I believe, evidently not only the leaves have the irritant but the roots do also, so a high probability that is how you got it on your hand. Wish I could offer a suggestion, other that what has been mentioned, but there is a Benadryl Roll on tube you can purchase that I used on chigger bites with some success. It is in a long skinny tube.

    I have used bleach. I only do it when I see that i am starting to get the rash. It works , but I would not use it on a large area.

    I use Fels Naptha bar soap for poison oak. Its cheap and dries up the oils quickly.

    good luck

    Re: may day .. SOS * Poison Ivy * remedy needed

    Dawg is the one with the Ivy, I do not get any reaction at all to Poison Ivy I know about getting it from cutting the roots from my oldest son who ended up with lots of rash on his hands from digging during the winter, but digging where Poison Ivy was abundant. He now avoids those areas like the plague, despite wearing gloves. I can still get by digging in those areas, but I am still careful on what I touch.

    Ice cubes is what we use. Either directly on the blisters or in a cold wet wash cloth. Hold it on there as long as
    you can stand it. Keep doing it as often as you can and they will dry it up.

    Re: may day .. SOS * Poison Ivy * remedy needed

    well since its the "oil" of the plant at work 8 any thing that breaks up oil should help * -- in theory -- try dawn dish washing liquid --it breaks up natural oils off of dishes -- so it should removed the oil == which is the first step to stopping it .

    then its dealing with the after effects of the oil

    do not laugh --but dandruff shampoo has a anti itch ingredent in it --that often times can help --( plus shampoo is designed to remove excess oil from your hair)

    Re: may day .. SOS * Poison Ivy * remedy needed

    Best is to stay away from it. You can get it from the roots, and you can get it from the smoke coming of the plants if you burn them. Some folks are more susceptible to it; maybe it has to do with your histamine level that day. Once you get it, it seems easier to get it the second time. I've never had a poison ivy rash. Here's an OIT (old Indian trick) that is reputed to work. Dig up a Poke Weed. Find a tuber in the root system. Soak this tuber in water in a fruit jar for quite some time. Apply the water to the rash, and it should dry right up. Might be, as poke is a diuretic. Fossis might have heard of this too. Best of luck to you.
    Just like Texas in 1880.
