I get poison ivy just looking at it, and the store bought fixes for it are crap. The last 3 cases I have used this regimen, and the last case cleared up in two days.

This is crazy for me as one little patch of poison ivy usually spreads all over me in a day lol. Here is what I do.

1. Rinse the affected area with cold water, then clean with Dawn dish soap. Helps remove the poison oils.

2. Create a paste of white cider vinegar and table salt. 1 part of each. I do 1/4 quarter cup vinegar and 1/4 salt. Leave on affected area 10 to 15 minutes until dryed. Rinse off with cold water.

3. Blow dry affected area with hair dryer at highest heat setting you can stand, about a minute or two.

At this point, my itching is gone, and stays away for about 4 hours. I do 4 treatments a day.

5. In between treatments I will dab some rubbing alcohol on the poison with a cotton ball.

I had poison on my arm a week ago. It was nearly dried up and gone in 2 days using this regimen, which is nuts for me, as it usually spreads everywhere on me fast like wildfire.

Hope this helps you.
