NOT AN ITCH ALL NIGHT OR ALL DAY!


Saturday, September 11, 2010

THE PREDNISONE REALLY WORKED! I SLEPT LATE AND FEEL SO MUCH BETTER TODAY WITH NOT A SINGLE IVY ITCH.
I WORKED IN THE YARD, PULLING UP WYSTERIA VINES FOR AN HOUR, I MOPPED AND CLEANED ALL THE FLOORS, DID THE LAUNDRY, AND COOKED A BIG GOOD DINNER WITH A HUGE POT OF SOUTHERN GREEN BEANS (OVER COOKED). IT WAS ALL GREAT!

    I had never had poison ivy until last year. I had it twice. The prednisone does really work! I also use bleach! I get into the bathtub and put it right on the spots. work also if you have just been around it as a preventative.

    Get a bottle of bleach and spray it over that ivy in the garden.It will kill it systemically.

There is nothing worse than ivy poison; It will sting a lot, but if you apply bleach directly to the pustules they will dry up (they will form a scab, but that is better than the itch). If you've been working in the garden and don't know if you've touched poison ivy, take a shower and use diluted chlorine bleach to kill the oil on the skin. Chlorine bleach is the only antidote I know of that really does in the ivy. All the other things, calamine, prednisone, benadryl, are just relief measures; chlorine kills it and keeps it from spreading.
