Any soap will break down the oils as well as isopropal alcohol. Tyipically, exposed skin should be thorougly washed within 60 minutes of exposure. However, for mitigatave measures, Ivy Block, sold in most stores, is EXTREMELY effective in preveting absorbtion of the toxic oils if applied pre-entry.

My Dermatologist prescribed me "Temovate Cream" (topical steroid) five years ago when I experienced a bad case of poison ivy. By FAR the best topical cream I have ever used, and I have used many. I have continued to use it for the last five years and it still amazes me with it's healing ability. It reliefs all itching/burning in 12-36hrs and completely clears up the sores in 2-4 days.

I'm glad that I'm not allergic to it. Its the chiggers that live on or near the stuff that skeer me.

Gil, dont you know not to believe anything in the tennessean. I hate poison IVY I used to get it all the time until I started spraying down with Right Guard deodorant. It blocks the oils from touching your skin...well it works for me.

I wash with a touch of bleach in cool water (don't need much bleach) to break down the oil. Works for me.

I'm sure you smell very manly and don't perspire in the woods, but I wouldn't want Ultragel Sport Invisible Cool-Peak shyt slathered head to toe when I go afeeshin'!

My phobia - not snakes, spiders, bees, or poisonous plants. Seed ticks will make me scream like a little girl! \:o

You dont use the stick deodorant goober...lol Use the "Spray" you get it at the dollar store for about 2 dollars. I spray it all over and it really doesnt smell at all after it dries. It works in potato guns also.
