Nothing can make it go away over night, but there are some excellent over-the-counter medications in the drug store that can help dry it up faster and others that will take away the itch.

My grandmother used to give us brown soap to wash the poison ivy with...and it dried it up pretty well too.

Don't forget to wash all clothing, tools, or anything else that could have gotten poison ivy resin on it, so it doesn't spread. Only the resin from the plant will spread poison ivy, not the water in the blisters.

When I get poison ivy, I get it BAD... big weeping blisters...
I always go get a cortisone or other steriod shot and that clears it up QUICK!

The doctor can give him a couple of shots that will help clear it up. If you can't get to the dr., buy some of that sunburn gel. It works great! It dries it up and helps numb it. He can also take orally OR in cream, an antishistamine. Stay out of the sun, and keep it cool. Wash all clothing.

Aveeno anti-itch cream. I just bought it today as I also have poison ivy rash and it seems to be helping. It contains both calamine lotion and colloidal oatmeal which is supposed to sooth your skin.

calamine lotion, don't scratch, put gauze over it so you don't spread it over the rest of your body.

guaze is not a good idea becauseit will absorb the oils relaesed from the pustulles and spread it to what ever the guaze is touching, ive done it before it kind of cooked it and got really bad, causing it to spread more easily, Colgate Octagon bar soap is cheap and you can get in wal-mart or other places to help stop spreading and Cortizone cream helps with the itch, hope it gets better. my grandma got the soap for me last year in 10th grade ,make sure it gets air but dont scratch it or rub it, good luck to father
