BLOW DRYER! A wise ferry man spotted me applying anti-itch cream on my legs in the car and asked if I got some bug bites. I said no, poison ivy or oak. He said to dry it out with a blow dryer. I had it really bad. When I used the blow dryer on the areas the sensation was very satisfying. Immediately some of the red areas disappear and you can feel the moisture in the blisters drying up. The liquid, puss or whatever it is in the infected areas is what causes the rashes to spread when itched. After a good blow dry which can be quite addictive on the wounds, I apply calamine lotion for further drying and treatment. Works really well.
