Quick Relief (Albeit Temporary) from Poison Ivy

By robertduval14

If you are dealing with a bit of Poison Ivy, particularly on the hands or forearm area, quick and intense temporary relief can be had by running hot water (as hot as you can stand it without burning yourself) over the affected area. The effect won't last a terribly long time, but the level of relief is unmatched.

I use Tecnu to wash my hands if I think that I have been exposed to Poison Ivy. Even if I develop Poison Ivy I wash the site twice a day with Tecnu and it provides relief and stops it spreading.I am highly allergic to Poison Ivy but have found that this really works for me.

Tecnu is the best product for Poison Ivy relief. One year I had a horrible case if Poison Ivy and luckily I found this product.
It removes the oils that causes the itch, which other products don't so like Calamine Lotion etc.

Aloe vera is excellent at drying out the affected areaamd stops the itching. I'm immune, but my mom isn't. Just make sure it's the real plant and not the gel in a bottle.
