Treatment for Posion Ivy?

Is there a treatment for poison ivy in a pill form? I have tried all the over the counter medicines to stop the itch, etc., but nothing seems to help. Outside of going to a doctor does anyone know if there anything else I can take?

Try apple cider vinegar. It works on most itches!

Unfortunately, the reaction is systemic, not just topical, so it has to run its course. Have you tried homeopathical treatments?

Go to the pharmacy and get a product call Tecnu. It was made for the loggers in the northwest. I am allergic to poison ivy as well and it works for me.

I am an experienced poison ivy victim-not anymore. After running down treatment after treatment and going to the doctor for shots and steroid, I went to an Apothecary shoppe and bought Rhus-tox. This is a treatment of 3 vials taken for 3 consescutive weeks on the same day of the week.

Pill is not as strong as the liquid so I highly recommend the liquid. Cost me about $22. I would have paid $2200.00 for it. Can't be used while you are infected but after you are clear. Take it. Once a year treatment is all you need. I have not had poison ivy for 3 years. For the relief of the itching, buy Gold Bond ointment. It is soothing and cool. I feel for ya, buddy.

Rub a green tomato on it several times a day and it should clear it right up after a day or too.
