OK I BOUGHT A PLACE IN THE COUNTRY AND MY FIRST YEAR GOT POISON IVY SEVERAL TIMES AND HAD TO GET A STEROID SHOT AND TAKE STEROIDS. I WAS THEN GIVEN A HOME REMEDY THAT WORKS VERY FAST AND I AM HIGHLY ALLERGIC TO POISON IVY. FIRST AS SOON AS YOU SEE IT BUBBLE ON YOUR SKIN MIX HALF BAKING SODA AND HALF WHITE DISTILLED VINEGAR AND MIX UNTIL IS IS PASTY LIKE PEANUT BUTTER AND PLACE OR THE AREA YOU GOT IT. WAIT TILL IT DRYS. THEN TAKE HYDROGEN PEROXCIDE AND POUR OVER THE AREA. TAKE A PAPER TOWEL AND FIRMY PRESS ON THE AREA AS HARD AS YOU CAN. IF YOU SEE A SLIGHT BIT OF RED WHICH IS BLOOD AND A TINY AMOUNT OF FLUID COMING FROM THE AREA THAT IS GOOD AND KEEP PRESSING FIRMLY FOR 5 MINUTES. THEN POUR RUBBING ALCOHOL OVER THE AREA AND AGAIN WITH A PAPER PRESS AS HARD AS YOU CAN. REPEAT THESE STEPS UNTIL YOU SEE THE BUBBLING GO DOWN AND THE ITCHING SHOULD STOP IN ABOUT A HALF HOUR AND THE AREA WILL BEGIN TO DRY UP. lATER JUST PUT THE BAKING SODA AND VINEGAR PASTE ON IT AND JUST LET IT DRY. t
THE MORE YOU REPEAT THESE STEPS THE FASTER IT WILL HEAL AND YOU WON'T GET A SCAR FROM THE POISON IVY. I HAVE DONE THIS FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND HAVE NEVER HAD TO GO TO THE DOCTOR AGAIN. AND AS THE OLD SAYING GOES ' 3 LEAVES LEY IT BE'.

Mixing baking soda and vinegar creates acid. What are you trying to do, trick someone into giving themselves severe burns? You want to hurt somneone, but you dont have the balls or strength to do it yourself. Pathetic.

Actually vinegar is an acid and baking soda is a base. Mostly the baking soda will buffer (or neutralize) the acid in the vinegar. Depending on the proportions of each you would end up with a neutral solution or maybe a weak acid or base. None of which are likely to get rid of the problematic oil in PI but there is not a risk of chemical or acid burn either.
