I am one of those people that if the someone gets into PI & sits in a chair, I will catch it if I later sit in the same chair. Its dreadful. I use many of the remedies listed but have found the itch is quickly lessened by using a blow dryer on the hottest setting & pointing it towards the ivy. Be warned--for the moment, the itching is so intense it feels like your skin is splitting, but then blissfully goes away for several hours. :) i will also rub fels naptha laundry soap or old-fashioned lye soap on the bubbles/patches & blow dry...it helps to dry the spots.
