    yeah so my right hip and lower stomach and part of my chest is now covered in poison ivy as it has been since thursday. Anyone got any good home remedies for it?

    also is it true that poison ivy can pull the ink out of your tattooes?

    my only advice is too masterbate ALOT, and watch the movie Spawn over and over and over while eating asian baby feet. works like a charm.

    Get .05% Cutivate if you can. If not, 1% Hydrocortisone is probably your best bet. Warm showers/baths cause that ish to spread, so the colder you can take it, the better. Remember that it leaves oil in your skin that causes irritation, so anything you can do to avoid spreading it helps. Eventually it will just run out. Shots in the ass suck.

    Go to the laundry aisle in the supermarket. Find a soap called Fels Naptha, it looks like this....

    Treatment for Poison Ivy
    After possible exposure to poison ivy, wash all clothing and accesories thoroughly with Fels Naptha soap. Resin from poison ivy can remain on the clothing for over 5 years, thereby causing a reaction to the skin long after the initial exposure.

    My grandma gave me this remedy some years ago. After possible exposure to poison ivy, shower with Fels Naptha to remove all resin from your skin. This will help to eliminate or minimize any reaction you might have to the poison ivy. Small children should only shower once after exposure as this soap is very drying. We have used this method for years. It works great! Follow-up with a lotion. I do know of adults who use this for a couple of days when they shower just to insure that all of the resin has been removed.

    Another remedy which I have not personally tried, is to rub the exposed area with a wet bar of Fels Naptha and allow the soap to dry on the skin. This also will remove the resin from your skin. People have told me that they do this before and after they have been exposed. Some people swear by this one.

    thanks alot Ken E Bus. I will definitely have to give that a try. I picked up some stuff at my pharamacy called ivydry and I can feel it drying it out but its not doing much for the itching. It will reduce the itching for about 3 hours then it starts in full force and I get to the point where I am ready to cut my skin off with a boxcutter. I am trying to find some benedryl creme or some other antihistimine cream in hopes that it will help. I wouldn't mind this as bad if it wasn't making my hips looks like freddy kreugers face.
