Looking For Poison Ivy Treatment

Have you ever had poison ivy, or possibly poison oak? These nasty rashes can put a serious damper on your day, week, or month! These itchy afflictions are not simple to cope with, and can essentially drive you insane.

If you do happen to realize that you came into contact with poison ivy, the first thing you should do is immediately wash off the area of skin with soap and water, certain medical soaps would be preferred for better relief but remember that time is an important factor here.

For less severe reactions, poison ivy reactions can be treated at home. The good news is most home remedies are inexpensive. The bad news is effective long-term products will cost you more, but the right one can be well worth the expense.

Burning poison ivy can cause skin rashes as tiny droplets of the resin carried in the ash and dust particles settles on your body. This does not mean that everyone would develop poison ivy symptoms.

There are poison ivy cure and treatments available in the market today like wipes, soaps and creams that vary in function. Some soothe itching and burning of the affected area while some specialized soaps and wipes degrade and take out urushiol from the skin.

Treating rashes and preventing their spread is best done by washing the affected area with alcohol, followed by running water. Then the exposed person needs to take a full body shower with soap to get rid of the urushiol-containing plant oils from affecting other parts of the body.

The main substance that causes it is an oily substance in the plant called urushiol. Poison ivy rash normally occurs within ten to fifteen minutes of coming into physical contact with the plant, which is why people should definitely take precautions.

The oil irritant in the ivy plant is urushiol and this is actually a chemical in the phenol family. Phenols are acids so washing the affected area with a diluted solution of alcohol helps in calming the rash. A baking soda and water paste can also be mixed and applied to the skin.

Blisters happen when two surfaces rub against each other. They commonly form on feet and hands, from constant pressure and rubbing of the skin. This happens quickly. You can acquire blisters on your feet that same day you wear poor-fitting or uncomfortable footwear.

Natural health care, in and of itself, is an ever growing market. Many manufacturers of skin care products are jumping on the band wagon, touting their products or ingredients as natural.

This is what you would call poison ivy. I know! I know! Why would I put poison Ivy on my face? Well good question! It was proposed to me, and it was very painful. I did not like it at all. Although it is recommended to “finish off” a cold sore. I just wanted to talk about it since it seems to have worked with some people.
