Dad could get it thinking about it. Mom and I used to pul the stuff out for an early morning hr. Remove clothing into washing machine, and take baths. Never got it myself.
There is a pill formulated from Poison Ivy to internally combat the itch from the inside out.
Don't beleive there is lifetime cure. Heard some say repeat contact respounces worsen.
Can't even burn the stuff. The smoke makes the plant's oil airborn.
I use 24D on the plant usually takes two/three applications when leaves are out, and then not sure. Chemically burned the oil is still present. Best bet, leave plant alone and let nature remove it from there on.
I have used calimine(?) lotion.
Frieda uses Benadryl Gel.
Wish this was more help.
Sniff sniff.., not intending to scratch.
I'll take the no hands on approach.
