Itchy !!

Never in my life, to the best of my recollection, have I ever had a reaction to poison ivy - that is ... UNTIL NOW ! Of course, I didn't even know I had touched the stuff until way after when the blisters and itching began. It's not pretty ...

Anyone out there got any remedies on how to get rid of it FAST ??

I would be putting on calamine lotion to keep it cool. Hope you get some relief soon, but I believe it can take a couple of weeks for the itching to subside.

I know some really good stuff that works fast for me. It's called Band-Aid Anti-Itch Gel.You can get it at Wal-Mart or any drug store.

My goodness - I've never had a reaction either - even when we lived in the South and had it all over the place. Oh I am so sorry. I know there is stuff that works...I just don't know what it is. I hope you find something and fast.

Take an oatmeal bath! And man that sucks. Poision Ivy sucks, hope it goes away soon!

I'm catching up on blog reading so this is late but we have poison ivy here and when the kids were little it was a constant thing to deal with while they explored in the trees out back. I was going to say oatmeal like SJ. I didn't use it as a bath though, unless the poison ivy was all over their bodies but it's a fantastic way to relief an itch. I would just make a liquidy paste out of the oatmeal and put it right on the poison ivy for 'instant' relief. Hope you don't get into any more. Ugh it's a pain. Literally!
