    I used to be deathly allergic to poison ivy and I've been hospitalized for having it on my face. After I passed my teens and hit adulthood I am no longer bother by it. If I come into contact with the plant I get a small rash but it's bearable now.

    I feel your pain man.

    This is the first time I got it and it spread like wildfire. But I got it undercontrol...thank you steriod cream! lol Got it wrapped up and shit. I need it to go away asap cause I am obviously allergic (seeing as it's an allergic reaction if anyone gets it) and if I'm allergic to something I never buld up immunity, it always jsut gets worse. Plus I'm going to a week long party with my friends and I'd rathe rnot have to deal with this shit while im on shrooms and drinking and smoking weed lol

    BUY SOME TECNU! Seriously, it washes all of the nasty urushiol oils off your skin. Last summer, my girl and I ended up getting stuck on a flooded trail, forcing us to walk through the woods which were literally COVERED in P.I. And because I didn't want to ruin my birks, I went barefoot. But we washed reeeeall good with some tecnu and didn't get any p.i rash. Tecnu works wonders.

    Yeah, I didn't take off my shoes because of the PI, it was because there were huggge puddles and mud and such. Thinking back, I'm not sure why I couldn't have just washed them... hmmm... too late now! But yeah, you can buy it in CVS or Walgreens or whatever local pharmacy around you. It's best to use within the first hour of exposure but works up to 24 hours after I think.

    They didn't have the Tec Nu stuff so I used heavy duty laundry detergent which apparently ha s a similar active ingredient lol. Apperentyl unless you get it right away it doesn't actually make it go away but it stops it from spreading because it breaks up the antogens at the surface of the skin that make it spread.

    I heard from a dermatologist that poison ivy can't spread from person to person, unless they get it in a cut... I wonder if that's true.

    Poison Ivy can be spread from person to person if the person with the PI doesn't shower. The 'poison' gets onto your skin, and it will stay there until you shower. Once you shower/swim/ect the residue is washed off your skin so it is safe for someone to touch you.

    This is the reason it is possible for someone who is allergic to contract it from animals.

    I alwasy just went to the doc and got some steriods and my rashes and blisters (nasty fucking rashes) cleared up in 2-3 days.

    P.I. especially sucks if someone is burning it and you breath the smoke.

    No. The oil form the plants gets in your skin and stays under the skin. So if you just brush against another person it won't transfer (because the skin traps in the oil), but if you scratch the skin then the little barrier it made is now torn down, so if you brush up against someone after you have scratche dyour skin it is quite possible you can tansfer it to them. At least that's my understanding.

    Since water doesn't wash away oil that is not entirely true. You MUST use a heavy-duty soap (not just water) that can disolve oils (the oil form the plant) and it will come off your skin. That doesn't clear the rash up, but it does help, and takes away the oils and antogens so you don't pass it to others.

    The earlier you treat it the better! It spreads like no ones business.
