Try washing your arms with bleach, mabey 20 parts bleach and 80 parts water, it will make you smell like bleach and dry your skin a little, but it pulls the poison oak oil out of your skin.
Nothing in the poision oak is abousloute, if your scared of the bleach go buy the Technu wash, its near 20$ per tube, but it does help.
