Alright first wash the infected area with soap, next keep the area dry it will spread faster when wet, also dont scratch it or touch any other parts of your body, the best solution is go to your local pharmacy or even your local A&P grocery store and buy MEDICATED CALAMINE Lotion this stuff works the best take some cotton balls and rub it onto wherever you have the poison ivy or poison oak

Calamine lotion does not work it just make you feel like pink lemon aid so try working on something else and get back to me.

Depending on your skin type, this does work. My daughter and my son both have reactions to poision ivy/sumac. My daughters rash was on her wrists, and the medicated calamine worked for her. However, my son gets a bad reaction and the steroid cream and cortizone shots worked for him.

We'll see...
