I'm 13 and I'm a very active person and I was playing out in my yard with my dogs when I saw my dog in a patch of poison ivy so I went to get him out and I fell in it. I showed my mom and my mom told me the best remedy is a thick layer of cortisone cream then a layer of calamine lotion wait till it dries and take a cool shower and it will be gone in 5 days to 1 week.:)

It's not very 'natural' to be using steroid therapy to cure poison ivy (cortisone) - perhaps this remedy works, but it has complications of its own. And commercial calamine lotion also has its side effects and therefore not a natural solution.
