Preparation H is a great home remedy for poison ivy rash.

If you get it use rubbing alcohol. The best thing is Burt's bees soap. But you won't have time for that:

The oil is the poisonous part. Everything you touch will get the oil on it: doorknob, lightswitch, etc. Wash as soon as possible, keep burts bees soap handy. The blisters will NOT spread the poison, that is a myth that came from people touching the doorknobs, etc.

Story time: when my grandpa was a kid, a friend told him if he ate a handful of it, he would be immune to it. He was on his deathbed for three days, doctors said there is nothing else to do. But he came out of it immune to it.

There is no way to achieve an "Immunity" to poison ivy. No eating it will do nothing but make your innards itch. Some are not sensitive to it, but with time and enough exposure EVERYONE will react negatively eventually.

And, yes that is definately poison ivy. I was out spraying some in my back yard today

Hands down the best thing for Poison Ivy, Oak, Sumack is Zanfel. It is $35 a tube but, use it as soon as you feel a break out and POOF within 3 days it will be gone and it will not itch at all. You have to FOLLOW the DIRECTIONS to the LETTER. http://www.zanfel.com/help/

There is/was a series of shots you can get from your doctor that is supposed to make you immune. Years ago when I worked for fish&wildlife I had to get the shots before I could start working there. I was never bothered by Poison Ivy even though I worked right in amongst it. Though I may have been immune naturally as I never had trouble with it on the farm before I took the shots.

Can't figure out why anybody would want to go there and buy that?

When I was a kid my step dad told me to put vinegar with salt mixed in it and wipe it on. It burned like crap. But it was gone the next morning. It was all scabbed up.
