This is the best product there is for after you have a rash.

That stuff is pricey but it does help.

One thing I do, if I know Ive been in poison oak I wash my arms in cold water as soon as possible, that seems to be the best prevention.

I had ivy and oak last week. Spread all over my arms, fingers, and had patches on my face and right under my nose. Was an extremely miserable week. That's what I get for cleaning up an abandoned house for a commercial client of ours lol

Nope, I just let it run its course. It's just about all gone now. Didn't have time to make a trip to the doctors with how busy we are.

Poison Ivy?

Don't ever try burning it either! As mentioned above, it doesn't have to be green for you to get a rash from it. I am highly allergic to it. I've had bubbles the size of quarters before and had to wrap up in gauze because I was oozing so bad.
