"Apple cider vinegar is an effective treatment for poison ivy because of its anti-inflammatory properties as well as for its ability to equalize the pH balance on the rash. When used as a topical application, apple cider vinegar will reduce the severity of itching and shorten the duration of the rash."
Another pinner said: If you're allergic to poison ivy, and about 85% of us are, this is a MUST have. Believe me when I tell you this stuff is like a miracle! It's a scrub that's easy to use and relieved itching and pain within about 30 seconds!! It chemically bonds to the irritating urushiol oil and *removes* it. Take it from someone who constantly has poison ivy. It's a bit pricey, but worth every penny. Really bad areas may have to be treated twice. Wal-mart : $35.22
