Tecnu Extreme has worked incredibly well for me. I forget the name of the natural herb in it but it is a natural antidote. And the Tecnu Extreme product has some sort of coarse ingredient that helps to work it deep into the skin. I take it into the shower with a cloth, apply Tecnu and scrub REALLY hard. Scrub as though you worry you may take off your skin. The idea is to work it deep enough into the skin to remove the poisonous oils. If you do it properly the relief is immediate. I don't know that it helps but I always do it with very warm water. It also seems best to do this as early as possible. Once I waited a day or two because I couldn't find my Tecnu and it seemed to take more applications to get relief.
