If you know a poison ivy sufferer, have them TRY THIS! To quickly rid yourself of poison ivy/oak/sumac you must eliminate the oils from the plant. OTC meds only relieve discomfort. To completely make it go away, you have to make the oils go away. The oils from the plant stay w/you as the liquid seepage in the rash) and the more it seeps, the more you can spread it and hold onto the rash. Scrub yourself & sheets/clothes affected in Dawn daily. The poison will dry right up & go away!
POISON IVY Poison ivy spreads through the spread of the oil within the blisters. Washing the affected area with Dawn, especially on children who keep scratching the blister’s open, helps dry up the fluid, AND keep it from spreading.
