7 Comments for the Poison Ivy Home Remedy

Anonymous

I've tried a number of solutions including the following Tecnu, J&J's poison ivy scrub, calamine lotion, poison ivy tablets (supposedly builds immunity), caladryl spray and lotion, fels-naptha soap, ditch the itch soap, castile soap, bleach, hot water, salt, pine tar soap, sulphur poweder, florasone cream, cortaid, burt's bees poison ivy soap, antihistamines such as Allegra, Triamcinolone, Quercetin, Butterbur, probiotics, Triphala and GOOP hand cleaner. NONE of these worked. I finally beat poison ivy after trying everything in the world by using AZTEC SECRETS Indian Healing Clay. As the clay dries, it sucks the poison ivy oil out of your skin. With each application it gets better. Usually by the 4th day of using it the poison ivy itch is completely gone and your skin can begin healing.

PLEASE tell me where I can buy the Aztec Indian Healing Clay. My three year old has poison ivy and the cream the doctor prescribed doesn't seem to be working. THANK YOU!!

You can find it online from Amazon. Locally you can find it for about the same price at Vitamin Shoppe.

Thank you, thank you! I'm getting some this weekend. I hope it helps my little one.

I think any sort of masque would help with that. I'm trying it right now. I assume since it says it sucks the imperfections and oils out of the skin that it will help remove the plant's oils.

You are either lying or you've just been fooled. The oil is not in the blisters/rash that you are applying the clay to, that is just symptomatic of the reaction to the Uroushiol oil, which must be removed immediately upon contact to avoid an outbreak.

Jewelweed is the only 'cure' to poison ivy, and it must be used as a prophylactic treatment before contacting the plant to avoid a reaction, though it does lessen the symptoms if you do get P.I.

Daily use of a soap rich in pumice (volcanic ash just like the clay) like lava helps to scrub off the sticky poison ivy resin and will help calm the skin so it can heal. It's not worth bothering to respond 'Mr Jewelweed'. I encourage everyone to seek out the solution that works best for them and offers good results!

Clay works but for best results avoid spicy foods that can exasperate the poison ivy skin condition and slow healing. If you're gonna eat something spicy make sure to balance it with something that will cool your body down like chewing on a spoonful of fennel seeds and swallowing after your meals. Both applied clay and fennel seeds help the body cool down its systemic response.
