Poison Ivy Cure
It’s that time of year again when the poison ivy is out in full force and waiting for a new victim.
Why is the victim always me??
You all remember last week when I was out rock picking
with Hubby for our landscaping.
Well must be I got into it, and I mean into it.
I have it on my legs, arms, ears, butt, back and in my hair.
I hate taking any kind of medication especially the steroids the doc prescribe for poison ivy, so I was in search of a natural remedy to cure the ivy.
I have found it and it works great.
- Wash the affected area with Fels Naptha or Dawn Dish soap.
- Pat dry (and then put the towel into the wash, do not reuse).
- Apply any kind of stick deodorant to the ivy blisters.
It takes about 3 days of applying the deodorant before the blisters are dried up.
Be diligent in applying the deodorant. I do it at least 4 times a day for the first 3 days. Then I continue to apply for 3 days more once in the morning and once in the evening. This method works just as good as a prescription, and most people have all the items on hand and can start using them right away.
I have been using this method for 2 years now, and it works great.
Ahhhh relief, no more itching:)
