3 Comments for the Poison Ivy Home Remedy


I am very allergic to poison ivy. I get a shot and a Rx for cream but it does not help. I went to the beach this weekend and the salt water dried it up and stopped the itch. I filled up a spray bottle and brought it home to spray when it starts to itch.

Do you think it needs to be sea water or just any salt water? Maybe I should use sea salt water? =)


Couple cups of Epsom salt and 1/4 c bleach in tub of water.... Soak 1//2 hr.... Then rub coconut oil on it.,,, get the coconut oil found near the vitamins in smart.

I use to live in a small rural town and every spring I would get poison ivy. When I was about 10 {some 60 years ago)I had an area about the size of a dinner plate just a big open sore... We went to the beach and U know U can't keep a 10 yr old out of the ocean. Within 2 days it had srunk to the size of a 50 cent peice... Never have found anything as good.
