Well you probably won't beleive this, but i use bleach, something about bleach being an acid and poison ivy being a base, and the bleach cancels it out. I take a q-tip and kinda scrub it (the blisters) it stings and scabs over, but it's gone in a matter of a day or two so it's worth it.

I am bad allergic to the stuff. But I went to Wal-Mart and bought some stuff called &quot;Ivy Block&quot;. It works pretty good, but you have to be sure it is on you while you work, cause it can wash off with your sweat. But it works. Should be in the pharmacy dept. Try it out.

I also used Ivy Block last year and will use it this year. Had real good results with it. Just make sure it is applied to all exposed areas before leaving the house.
