Yes I have, I have used a medicatio(over thye counter) by Ruark or Rusak or something like that and I dries up the Ivy very quickly. When I get poison ivy I get it all over no matter how small the initial spot is. Also another way to not get it, if you know your going to be around the ivy is to cover your expossed skin with dry soap, just wet your skin a little and apply. After work you can wash off the soap and then no ivy. It stops or kills the oil that is left behind from the ivy....My doctor recomended this to me.

I've used Ivy Block with success when I knew I'd be working with poison ivy. I had an employee before who would get it if he looked at it from across a yard. I had him try it & he didn't get it, so based on that I' give it a thumb's up.

I use IVY BLock it does well, just be sure to apply it and let it dry before you get around the poison ivy.
Remember after you get the poisn ivy on you, wash off with "cold" water and some kind of a dish soap, atleast 30 minutes after being exposed.

Poison Ivy, Oak or Sumac. Have your doctor perscribe Clobetasol- Propionate. This perscription will knock your breakout dead. Keep a full perscription at home at all times. Just do not get this on your clothes before it dries. It will leave a transparent type stain.
