I read this post, and mixed up my own concoction. I did not want to use anything other than natural ingredients, because my PI was off the chain severe, and was oozing like a madman. So, I got my blender out, added in 3-4 cups of oats, 1/4 cup of salt, 1/2 cup of baking powder, and added in white vinegar until it was like a pizza dough. And then I took a handful, stretched it out to the size of the area, which for me was 6 x 8', and then wrapped it up, using saran wrap, or a large wound care bandage, and taped it on. Sat around for a few hours and let it do its thing. It burns so slightly, but I believe that it wicks out the oils, and definitely dries up the skin. Three days, and three treatments later, and it was all done for. Now it is just peeling like a sunburn would, and has very nice healthy skin underneath. Again, just an amalgamation of what I read here to begin with. A case like this, so severe, and using conventional means, would have take upwards of 2-3 weeks to get to this point. As it stands, from when I went from full on messed up blistered and oozing heavily, it took almost 4 days to be 'cured'. In other words, no drainage, all dried up, and starting to peel off and show the new skin. I am very happy.

Thank you for this! I am trying it as we speak! I got the worst case because I'm assuming our puppy got into some poison ivy. Which then was transferred to my 3 year olds face an before it was showing on him I had picked him up an that side of my neck an chest where is head was is where I'm covered!. Hoping we are done with this horrible stuff in 3 days ...


Mix baking soda and water until you get a smooth buttery texture and spread on stale natural bread and you get the same result. I've had bad poison ivy breakouts since I was little. I'm allergic to aloe so most of the over the counter products don't work. When poison ivy is about to come to break you can use this but if the sores open you simply want to keep it covered the more things you put on it the more it has the chance of getting infected, so be careful if it comes to this point, especially in children.


This really helped me! Thank you, thank you!
