What's the best cure for a posion ivy rash?
Not Medical Advice:
The best treatment for a Poison Ivy rash is a combination of anti-itch creams and oral antihistamines to control the itching. Wet dressings and drying lotions may also help. In severe cases, corticosteroid pills or shots may be needed.
Contact dermatitis is the condition, after direct contact with Poison Ivy, in which the skin becomes red, sore, or inflamed. The rash normally appears 24 to 48 hours after exposure and can have red bumps that form moist, weeping blisters. These blisters can ooze, drain, or become scaly and raw.
This summer's heat and humidity is encouraging the growth of poison ivy, so watch out when you are out hiking!
