Clorox/water (50/50) worked WONDERFULLY for me! My last outbreak last year was from touching a plant unknowingly on my FIL's porch. I bought Tecnu, Caladryl and tried RDigest suggestions. That took four weeks to go away and I did eventually have to get some RX from the Dr. This is DAY 2 and my husband was amazed! I'm very allergic to the stuff and yesterday my forearm was already beginning to look like an apocalyptic burn . I had already taken a shower and was beginning initial washings and decided I just cannot tolerate 4 weeks of oozy blisters when I have oral surgery and classes within a week (oh and a husband and 4 kiddos). Save yourself going through more days of painful rashy-ness and TRY THIS METHOD.The one little spot left on my forearm is less than the size of a quarter. It's seeping but I've got a piece of tissue over it. I do feel some bumpiness around it however it isn't red and it isn't bothering me. Skin is the largest organ in the human body and repairs itself quickly. Poison Ivy did not effect my bloodstream and Clorox will not either. As far as tissue damage, if I were leaving this on for a long period, maybe. The PI rash though is already messing with my skin, killing all the irritants that help the rash makes sense.
