I have recently had poison ivy, and everyone who has had it will try just about everything to stop the itch. Something that I tried and helped clear up the outbreak: I took a small amount of a shampoo like Head and Shoulders and just rubbed it on the affected area and let it dry. Soon after I did this the itching was relieved and the area seemed to have cleared up. This worked for me and hopefully it will for others.

This is interesting. My son gets poision ivy, sumac rashes bad. We went to the doctor and she said it looked a lot like enzema. It's not, but I wonder if sensitive skin to these posions may have reactions different than those with oily skin. My son has fair skin, but tans well in the summer after a burn. So using head and shoulder's may help if its in the beginning stage...hmmm??
