Developed serious case of poison ivy. I tried all of the home remedies suggested here including coffee, tea, banana peels,Domeboro, baking soda and on and on without success. The rash was initially on the insides of both my lower legs but quickly started to spread. Bottom line: if you have access to medical support/clinic/doctor etc., as soon as rash starts up and begins to spread get thee to the medical team. Request prednisone dose pack and start in immediately. I am on 10 mg pills and the cycle is 6 pills each first 3 days, 5 pills next 3 days etc. until supply is used up. I noticed immediate shrinkage of the sores, cessation of both weeping pus and itching. I am not suggesting that these home remedies are not helpful; however, in my case they did not stop the spread of the rash and that was the key to life. For what it is worth.
