I’m looking for info on Immuno-Ivy a l950′s treatment for poison ivy -it was kept on power lineman’s truck.
Poison Ivy Problem
My father was a power lineman and he said they kept these vials of Immuno-Ivy in the truck’s first aid kit–if you were exposed you were supposed to drink this over a period of 3 days–he has never had poison ivy since.
I used Immuno Ivy as late as 1980s and it worked for me too. I am very allergic to poison ivy and I had no symptoms when I took it. I have not been able to find it since. I am not sure it is made anymore.
There are tales in folk medicine that settlers used a tea made from the young leaves of the poison ivy plant to prevent a reaction to poison ivy later on when clearing the land.

I found what appears to be a similar product on-line called Oral Ivy. I have not used this so I don’t know if it works as well as the Immuno Ivy did. Try the link below.

Allergic contact dermatitis as a response to plants is sometimes referred to as allergic phytodermatitis. This condition can be quite unpleasant but does not typically pose serious health risks. Prevention of the condition is best.

What Causes Poison Ivy Rash/
Poison ivy causes a Poison Ivy Rash which is a common cause of urushiol induced contact dermatitis. It is an allergic reaction, when the urushiol oil from the poison ivy plant comes in contact with the skin.
The Poison Ivy Rash is very unpleasant, however it does not pose any serious health risks that are known.
Preventing the Poison Ivy Rash is the best thing you can do when dealing with poison ivy.
Symptoms of the Poison Ivy Rash include intense itching, inflammation, oozing and in severe cases it produces blisters and it has a burning sensation.
Spreading blister fluid from scratching doesn’t spread the rash, but germs under your fingernails may cause a secondary infection.
The poison ivy plant produces a resin called urushiol. Urushiol is an oil that seeps from the leaves of the plant and does not vaporate; leaving the plant active year round. Urushiol is a yellow liquid and is nearly insoluble in water.

Poison Ivy Rash appearance
The Poison Ivy Rash has a linear appearance when it is at it’s peak because of the way the plant leaves brush up against your skin. If you become somehow in contact with clothing or any type pet fur that already has urushiol on it, the rash will probably be more evenly distributed and spread out.
The Poison Ivy Rash reaction usually becomes apparent and develops into a Poison Ivy Rash in 12 to 48 hours after you’ve been in contact with the urushiol oil and the Poison Ivy Rash can last up to three weeks in some cases. In more severe cases, your Poison Ivy Rash can streak and form breakouts in other areas.
This often leads people to think that the Poison Ivy Rash is spreading or that it is contagious; however its more likely to act this way due to the rate at which your skin absorbed the urushiol. Remember that different parts of your body absorb differently.
