Ok, I'm the type of person that when I get Poison oak/ivy, I am completely covered from head to toe. I'm talking in between my fingers/toes, arms, legs, hands, feet, the whole 9 yards. I have tried almost everything, from touch-me-not juice to over the counter ointments/pastes, even prescription medication. None of it really works that well, and if you are like me, you want instant results. well I found a way to get them.... so here it goes. If you can handle a few minutes of pain, the quickest, most efficient and effective way to get rid of it, is to just have at it and start itching everywhere you can. It would be best to do this outside in the yard. Pop as many of those damned blisters as you can. (I found a pocket knife to be the most effective.) Then once you are satisfied, ( I did it till I was bleeding... not bad though, just little spots.) just pour some of your regular house hold bleach on everything you just scratched. The pain is intense, but well worth it. Keep the bleach on as long as you can stand it. Then just rinse it off with the water hose. You will see that the blisters will start scabbing over within 5 minutes with NO MORE ITCHING. Obviously when you do this it kills ALL of the oils from the plant and gives it absolutely no chance to terrorize and torment you any longer. When I did this I was at my wits end and could not take it any more. I was miserable to the point where it was keeping me up all night it was so bad. So, sleep deprived and needing some well earned rest, I tried this. And if I ever get it again I will do the same. Like I said, the pain is intense, but well worth the 2 minutes of it. I hope this helps.
