Im in high school and i got the poison ivy right before homecoming! It was all over my arms and hand, in between my fingers and on my FACE! I TRIED EVERYTHING! i was desperate!
-Clorox- no just burns more and irritates skin
-salt and vinegar- same thing as Clorox
-Oatmeal works a little bit feels really good and if you let it sit for like 10 mins it will look a little better nothing drastic. Just boil some water and oatmeal and let it cool and salp it right on!
--To help the itch put it in hot water( as hot as you can stand) for like 5 mins and then switch right away to cold water! feels really good!
My mom went to WALMART and got these items! first i took a warm/ hot shower and put a cream on called ZANFEL kinda spendy but feels really good and opens up the pores.(you use it in the shower). Then when you get out and dry for a like 10 mins put this cream called IVAREST helps itch and slowly makes the ivy go away. both of these items are just at walmart. and the only 2 that WORKED!!!
hope it goes away soon!
