Poison Ivy

Damn it to hell I got in the Ivy and it sucks. Bad! I haven't had a bad case of Poison Ivy since I was a kid. It's on both arms, both legs, a bump or two on my stomach, in my ear, a spot on my forehead and yes it's on my dick.

Fooooooooooock!

Epsom salts bath does relieve the itching quite a bit. If it's on your junk, get your MD to get you a Medrol dose pack. Steroids will clear it up.

If you rub Tabasco sauce all over it it will stop itching then disappear in about three days.

I'm super allergic to poison ivy. I haven't had a really bad case in several years, thank God. I do everything I can to stay far, far away from that stuff.

Don't even bother with over the counter stuff.

Go straight to the doctor's office. He will give you a steroid shot(don't ask me how it stops poison ivy, it just does), prescription pills, and prescription anti-itch cream. This is the fastest, and least itchy, way to get back to normal.

At the first sign of irritation caused by poison ivy/oak, wash the area with soap and water if possible, but in any case, spray (never use a stick or roll-on) the area with an antiperspirant containing aluminum chlorhydrate. Arrid Extra Dry was a favorite, but any kind that is not too sticky will work. Simple deodorants won't work; it must be an antiperspirant! This material reacts with the urushiol, the principal irritant in poison ivy/oak, and deactivates it. It will even provide relief and start healing when oozing blisters are present.
Never tried that, but one thing that always worked for me (not on the face or junk of course) but take some gauze and soak that shit with alcohol and then use prewrap or an ace bandage and wrap it real tight on the affected area. Leave it on while you're sleeping. That shit works. Trust me I'm extremely allergic and I absolutely loathe that shit.

I just use Ivy Dry. Works like a charm. Stops the itch and dries up the rash. I've used it for years now and it's a godsend.

I got into some of that right before I made a drive from Wichita to Dallas and it got so bad and my face got so swollen that I couldn't see, just about the time I pulled into Dallas. My mom took me straight to the emergency room. Hell, that might have been poison oak. All I remember for sure was that it was frickin' miserable and they gave me a benedryl shot. I think each time you get that shit it's worse than the time before.

zantac and zyrtec. Both are histone blockers. I had it bad and the doctor prescribed this. Within a day, my symptoms were completely gone. I did have to keep taking them for a week or so though. I've had poison ivy quite a few times when I was a kid and am highly allergic to it. I hadn't had it for years until this last time, and it was pretty bad. I was amazed at how well the above treatment worked. Just one pill each at night before bed and relief by morning.

I've been applying the Ivarest and also went to the doctor. He didn't give me a shot either. He wrote me script for predizone and then for the itch Hydroxyzine HCL. I looked it up and it's kind of weird. It did calm me.

Hydroxyzine HCL

Hydroxyzine HCL is used to calm energy in the brain, which assists in the treatment of allergic reactions, nausea or vomiting. In some cases this medication is also used as a sedative or during anesthesia.


Hydroxyzine HCL is used to decrease activity in the central nervous system, and can also be used as an antihistamine to reduce allergic reactions and similar symptoms. Given the wide variety of uses, it is difficult to determine how this medication should be administered, so you will need to follow the instructions set by your doctor. Do not make any changes to your prescription before speaking to your doctor and receiving permission to do so. You will also need to talk with your doctor about how to alter other prescriptions you may be using as these can cause a negative reaction in the body if paired incorrectly.

Indications and Usage

Hydroxyzine is sold under the brand names Atarax or Vistaril. Hydroxyzine is used as an antihistamine to help reduce the occurrence of sneezing or runny nose. Unlike some antihistamines you can use Hydroxyzine HCL to treat allergic reactions on the skin such as hives or contact dermatitis. In some cases this medication is also used in conjunction with other substances as an anesthesia or to control nausea or vomiting. Hydroxyzine is available in tablet and liquid form. Dosage will vary based on the nature of your symptoms and the condition of the patient. Do not take more of your medication than prescribed as this can lead to severe side effects.

If you are taking a tablet form of Hydroxyzine HCL, take your dose with a full glass of water. Those using the liquid form of this medication should use the dose measuring spoon provided rather than a utensil from their home to ensure that they are getting the proper dose. If you do not have a dose measuring spoon, you can ask your pharmacist for one. If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is close to the time when you would be taking your next dose. Do not double up doses to make up for those you have missed.

A buddy of mine is super sensitive. If he touches it his whole BODY breaks out in a rash. As a kid it even got into his lungs and almost killed him.
I used to be resistant, until I got into a really bad one time. Now I get it bad anytime I come into any contact with it. So I wouldn't push your luck.

I used to do a lot of yard work. Definitely the key is to wash your skin with water as soon as you see contact. As long as you get to it within 30 min. or so you should be ok.

That's what I've always heard. That basically the more you get it the worse you get it.

Yeah, that's my understanding.

It's a resistance, not an immunity. Enough exposure and eventually I'll be just as sensitive as anyone else.
