read 4 pages of this website and did this: scrubbed my 11 yoa with dawn and cool h2o. she was blistered on both inner arms from wrist to shoulder, back, from neck to waist, both hands and outer thighs; blisters and itching just appeared. we just mowed a sea of PI; at least 1/4 acre, 5 days earlier; have numerous outside cats she was carrying around. after scrubbing dry with pure dawn, and removing w/cool water, made a mud pak from terramin mud, (u can subtitute ANY mud, ive also used mud and water for shingles, or any store bought mudmask,or dirt from yard), mixed in two tblspns mud powder with 1 tblspn ac vinegar (u can use white or apple cider vin), made a thick paste, NOT RUNNY, wiped on thinly but covering ALL IVY areas, (burns slightly for a coupla mins). you can blow dry on cool or fan hard, with a piece of cardboard. dries in less than three mins...INSTANT RELIEF. VERY DRYING. sucks any and ALL moisture out of skin instantly. i gave her 75mgs of benadryl, put her in very loose cotton clothing and she was back videogaming right away..lol...she takes benadryl every morning for severe seasonal allergies and has a high tolerance to antihistimines. i also mixed her a teaspn of terramin in a glass of filtered water with a capful of ac vin. she drank it down...SUPER DETOX..BEST THERE IS...and is snoozing peacefully beside me now. her blistered areas are shrinking away, the raised, angry, welted areas are GONE. i used this same remedy when i broke out in shingles that were EXCRUCIATING....magical relief...if you dont want it to keep wearing off, mix in 3 or 4 drops of olive oil or avocado or almond or vit e oil. but the oiled mix wont cover as well, wont dry as well, and i only use it AFTER the rash is completely dried aND itch free. the skin will usually peel like a sunburn and have fresh baby skin underneath. you may have to repeat the dawn scrubbing if you arent thorough the first time...YOU MUST REMOVE THE POISON IVY OIL THAT IS CAUSING THE ITCHY BLISTERING. the reason technu works is because it uses a heavy oil to float the lighter poison oil up off the skin and you rinse it away with cool water. HEAT SPREADS THE OIL BY MELTING IT. cool hardens the oil allowing you to rinse it off. heat is soothing once the poison oil has been removed or dried. the reason gojo works is because it contains essential citrus oils, the reason menthol ointment and tiger balm work is because of essential oils of eucalyptus and or mint oils. any of these oils can be added, 7 or 8 drops, to a bottle of caladryl or benadryl gel or any lotion or aloe gel and used successfully to treat after removing the poison oil. its three hours later, my lil one is back on her vidgame and weve only had to reapply one little spot between shoulders. i rescrubbed the itchy area with dawn and cool water and reapplied mud. shes ll smiles!!! good luck 2 u!!!!!
