please! I need a home remedy fast, I need to get rid of poison ivy or whatever by halloween! I have on my face, around and partly in my nose! seriously! I also would like it if you tell me wether you’ve tried it before.
I actually give myself poison ivy a couple times a year to assist with a wart problem that doens’t respond to tranditional treatment (poison ivy cures it for about 6 months).
Poison Ivy gives you "dermatitis", the condition that causes redness, itching, blistering, swelling, hives, etc. The suffering can be broken down into two periods. 1) The dermatitis 2) healing from the dermatitis. There are couple options I’ve used over the years…
1) cortisone shot – You get this at the Dr but its really only useful the first day or so. I don’t bother with this anymore.
2) *HOT* water – This drives out the histamines and gets rid of itching. It also feels euphoric (REALLY GOOD). However, I think it actually extends the dermatitis so I don’t do it anymore. However, if you are really itching, this will cure that for about 12 hours. You have to use really hot water though (almost to the point of scalding).
3) Domeboro – You get this over the counter at a large pharmacy. This stuff is *AWESOME*. It drives down the blood flow at the surface and therefor reduces the dermatitis. This greatly reduces the suffering period because the shorter the dermatitis, the shorter the period to recover from the dermatitis (so its a double bonus). I can now cure my poison ivy in about 3 days using a Domeboro wrap 4 times a day, 30 minutes each time (2 AM, 2 PM).
I hope you feel better soon.

Home Remedies For Posion Ivy
I have poison ivy in a “sensitive” area, if you know what i mean. And it sucks, i have tried this poison ivy spray and toothpaste but it doesn’t help and it seems as if it is spreading. So if you have any home remedies then let me know! Thanks!
Make a paste out of baking soda and water. Then apply it for as long as you need to. This will kill the itch.
Poison ivy is extremely variable in both its habit of growth and kinds of habitat. It grows in deep woods or in the open; in dry, sandy areas, crevices of rocks, or swamps; along the borders of woods, fencerows, or roadsides. You are not safe even in your own garden, and you may be surprised to find it growing in your flower beds or shrubbery. Usually it is found in low-growing, rather dense colonies, sometimes practically carpeting the ground.
Poison ivy is a common wild plant that causes an extremely irritating allergic reaction when you touch it or brush against it. Exposure to it may result in what doctors call contact dermatitis – a blistering rash that spreads over the skin in the area touched by the plant. In severe cases, this rash can develop into extremely painful, swollen areas of skin filled with fluid.
