Have to say I've tried it all. I've been allergic to poison ivy / oak since a child. I asked The Lord one day about it knowing that He had to have created something that would counteract the reaction. Then I remembered as I was praying...I had poison ivy one time before I had gone to the beach. The saltwater dried that stuff up in no time. I just happened to have some Dead Sea mineral salt scrub at home....went to the shower, scrubbed the affected areas (which I had been suffering with for a few weeks), then took Technu or Zanfel (which I had been using religiously; worked temporarily) and washed after I scrubbed with the sea salt to remove the ivy oils. (please know that it will burn a little to scrub with salt but, this is drying up the rash...better than an itch). The ivy dried up in a few days. PRAISE JESUS!! If you know you have come in contact with the ivy, wash with the Technu or Zanfel (or oil removal product) to avoid the rash but, if you do break out, try the sea salt. My mother had a rash to break out on her legs and I told her to use the sea salt and wash with the oil removal product and sure enough, she said it stopped the itch and was happy to finally find something that helped. I pray this helps you all as I know how you feel. Have a blessed day!
