Primal Poison Ivy Remedies
Living a more primal lifestyle means more time outdoors for me. My problem is I am very allergic to poison ivy. I seem to have picked a rash of the dreaded plant while mountain biking last week. It is on my right hand and driving my nuts.
I do the typical clean it with alcohol, and hydrocrotizone cream. Does anyone have some other remedies that seem to work?
If you can find it, use the juice from jewelweed stems. It usually grows in the same area as poison ivy. Milkweed sap is also a remedy for poison ivy.
Baking soda or rub a bar of laundry soap on it. You can make your own soap or I think Kroger's sells it in the laundry isle.
