So it's possible that your susceptibility may reduce over time.
This is not true. Repeated exposure to poison ivy will make each outbreak worse.

The tecnu will work if you are able to wash the poison off within 30 minutes. But the beauty of Zanfel, is that it will work at pretty much any point in the outbreak, even days later. Make sure to use it exactly as the directions instruct, otherwise you are just wasting it.

Wash everything you have touched, tools, doorknobs, shoes, everything. It took me a while to figure this out, but I realized that even though I had washed EVERYTHING, or so I thought, I was repeatedly re-exposing my forearms (where the worst of the blisters were) by sitting in my favorite chair, and placing my forearms down on the arms of the upholstered chair.

ZANFEL is the BOMB!!!

$35.00 @ Walmart. But, it works!! I used it and then used the hairdryer technique. I have been "itch-free" for the last 18 hours!!

YAY!!!

Thank you!!

Yay! Glad it helped.

I will never be without a tube in the house.

I guess when you consider avoiding going to the doc, avoiding RX drugs, and the suffering, maybe the cost isn't so bad.

Glad you are feeling better. Now, just don't get reinfected! The scars on my arms are awful.

It doesn't require very much from the tube. Then you activate w/water & mix into a paste. I do most of the mixing in the palm of my hand, then continue right on the infected area. Rub the stuff right in til I can't stand it. Rinse it off, pat dry, then run the dryer over it. Man! Wish I had this a few days ago!!

Not necessarily true.

I live in a rural area filled with poison oak. When I first got here I was surprised to see my neighbors walking through it wearing flip flops but they explained over time their susceptibility to it reduced. This has been true for most of my neighbors as well as me. I know this is not true for everyone though.

I gave a lecture on local medicinal plants and asked the audience this question: are you more susceptible after living here a long time or less? Out of 40 people about 2/3s said less susceptible and 1/3 said more.


BS, age 53, d-day 6-2-08, divorced after 17 years and 20 together. Now I am living alone in the beautiful rural property that was once the dream retreat with X. It's taking a long time to create new dreams but despite some struggles I am mostly happy.

true.

I have found that chronic mild exposure (I have a dog, and do a lot of work in the woods), combined with a steroid cream (I have RX for betamethazone dipropionate) has resulted in me really not reacting to it much at all any more. A few dots of rash here and there. None of that whole-arm puffball oozzy stuff.

I'm actually convinced that my immune system has been largely de-activated.

I HIGHLY recommend a visit to your doctor to secure the high-potency cream RX. It cuts the immune response way way down. After a significant exposure, I put the cream on where I start to itch (before the skin starts showing a rash), and I never really get a rash. Maybe a sorta sandpapery feel and pink color, but it goes away within a day or two.

Hey, I'm so glad Zanfel helped. The relief from the itch is amazing, isn't it? Just keep doing it whenever it starts to itch and you will start to heal.


I'm not the winner, I'm the prize.
