What is the best medicine/treatment you have found to get rid of poison ivy?

I was working in the yard last Friday trying to reclaim my fence from the wild, and apparently stumbled into some poison ivy/oak/sumac. By Sunday, I had the stuff up and down both arms (which were swelling), on my stomach, down my left leg, and my eyes were working on swelling shut. I went to the urgent care where they gave me a shot, and prescribed a cream to put on the affected areas - Desoximetasone.

Today, my eyes and arms aren't nearly as swollen, but the ivy rash, those bumps, seem to be spreading. Is there anything else I should put on this crap to dry it up, or should I just let the medicine and cream do its work?

And yes, I know I should try to avoid it to begin with! Just cutting a few of you off at the pass.......

I've used Super Ivy Dry, you can pick it up at Wal-Mart. Burns like a son of a gun, but that crap goes away in 2-3 days.

Oatmeal bath is pretty effective.

I usually have sex with a female stranger and pass the poison ivy onto her.

I wouldn't do that unless the poison ivy was all over your sac.

I suppose you'd get some of the benefits from plain ol' rolled oats, but you'd have to stick it into the Cuisinart and grind it to a fine powder.
The commercial versions are already ground and have some additional moisturizers and emmolients.
I was not on the bandwagon, but the GF recommended it, and it worked great. I guess it's about the bath being warm and all over that it kind of 'cooks' the itch out of you.

If it's not bad the ivy dry is good, if I get a bad case I get a Cortizone shot from the Doc (any good cream you use will be cortizone based), the shot will usally clear up even the worst case in a day or two.

The best thing when you can is to take a shower as soon as possible after exposure and wash your clothes (make sure to wash your hands after handling the contaminated clothing). Lye soap is the best thing I have found to cut the oils, there is also a specific soap on the market for poisen ivy which I have found effective (can't remember the name off hand though).

If you fire up a big log in the fireplace, just touch it to each PI blister. That should take care of everything.

When doing this make sure you burn some of the poison ivy with it.

Steroids from your doctor. Nothing else compares. When I was a kid my dad and I had poison oak from head to toe, that was a miserable f**king time.

I always found a sunburn worked. Seriously.

I think I'll just get a ball peen hammer and hit myself in the nuts every time I start to itch. At least I won't be thinking about how bad it itches.

This works for me every time, sounds goofy but it really works.
scratch all poison ivy spots quite hard and break them open and either pour chlorine beach on them or put a gallon in your bath tub and soak in it,{less painful} this sounds crazy but works wonders I PROMISE
