After a 2 weeks or so of using calamine, Caladryl, Ivarest, etc., I manned up n used my fingernails to claw off the poison welps and existing scabs from previous scratching while taking a HOT shower. Instant relief. The downside is my bloody, raw arm made me look like I was patient zero of the Zombie Apocalypse. But, I'd rather heal an open wound to get new skin than treat a nasty, itchy poison any day. After claw treatment: anti-bacterial spray, neosporin, bandage, medical tape. Only needed bandages for 2 days, healed up in a few days total. No more itching!
