Girl, I have been plagued with poison ivy since I was big enough to wander off from home. Got horrible cases of it every spring and summer. If only my mom had known about the hot water treatment, I could have suffered much less. And she could have rested instead of basting me in calamine lotion over and over.
Standin in a hot shower, as hot as you can stand it for as long as you can stand it will give you hours with NO itching. Blow drying spots during the day will give you hours of relief, too. It also heals faster, in days insted of weeks!!
