11 Comments for the Poison Ivy Home Remedy


i had just gotten posion ivy. i still have it now while i am writing this its all over my arms and my face. but for the last few days i was using this benedryl ointment stuff. yeah it works for like the first few days, but it doesnt stop the spreading, and my body got immune to it so the more i used it, the more it was itchy and stung like hell. so i was looking around this moring for a home remedy and i found the best cure i could ever imagine, ITS SOOO SIMPLE! take VICKS VAPOR RUB and apply it over the affected area. i swear it stops the itching and burning right away and leaves a nice cooling sensation. ahh im relieved right now. please try it. you will feel better.

Thanks for the tip, nothing was working for my daughter and this treatment stopped the itching right away.


Vicks really works- it relieves right away.
I'd also used some bleach to dry up the area fast

Thank you!
