Treating Poison Ivy
Wash the affected area in cool water only, no soap.
Then take a shower with soap and water.
Apply an over-the-counter topical corticosteroid preparation or take a prescribed oral corticosteriod.
Do not scratch the rash or blisters. It can cause an infection from the bacteria under your nails.
To relieve itching and irritation caused by these poisonous plants, apply a topical over-the-counter skin lotion. Calamine lotion, Band-Aid Anti-Itch Gel or creams containing menthol such as, (Sarna) are good options.
To help you sleep, use an oral antihistamine such as, (Benadryl) or similar products.
Use colloidal oatmeal (Aveeno) in cool water tub soaks.
Use cool, wet compresses several times a day for 15 to 30 minutes.
Poison ivy and other plant rashes are not contagious and can not be spread from person to person.

comitting suicide usually works


wahoo
It sounds stupid but this works for me. I use my hair blow dryer on the area...use it till you can't stand it...take it away for a while, the do it again...and again. For like maybe 5 minutes. I have tried lotions, calomine lotion, etc etc...which may take the itch away for a while but the heat of the dryer must dry it up or something because I have no itching after that.
