Rub more poison Ivy on you...


Gone fishin'
Use a cream with an antihistamine in it...do not scratch it no matter how much you want to and it will go away in a few days - overnight, I don't think so.

You can't. Once the blisters show up, you are in it for a week or so.


NoDontTrustMe

Get a shot from the doctor. It's your fastest remedy.

You also, may be prescribed an oral medication, Prednisone.

You will still have some blisters, but you won't get anymore and it'll reduce the inflammation of the ones you have.

IF YOU HAVE NO MEDICAL INSURANCE, try Caladryl Clear. It is sold at most drug stores and relieves poison Ivy. It doesn't cure it though.

You can't cure it overnight....it takes a couple of days sometimes even weeks...just don't mess with it and it will go away.

Poison Ivy can not be cured overnight.

I have been in this situation many times and it can take up to 3-4 weeks if infection sets in to be completely rid of it.

You can't cure it over night. It is an allergic reaction. The resulting rash can range from mildly unpleasant to a true emergency with intense swelling, blistering, and oozing. With even a moderate case, as you may have experienced, the itching can seem unbearable.

Most treatments are aimed at reducing the itching, until the self-limited rash runs its course, which takes about two weeks.

Most people find that cool compresses in one form or another are quite soothing. Try using a towel or wash cloth soaked in either plain tap water or Burow's Solution (an Astringent solution -- you can make it yourself using Domeboro tablets or powder packets available over-the-counter). This can help relieve the intense itching and remove dry crust that has formed as a result of the rash. A fan blowing over the cool compress will diminish some of the heat of the itching and help to dry up some of the ooze coming from the rash. As the skin is cooling, the blood vessels compress and that cuts down on the itching and the new ooze. This is especially good during the two or three worst days of the rash. Along the same lines, some dermatologists recommend rubbing an ice cube gently over the rash several times a day, then letting the skin air dry. Soaking in a tub, particularly using an oatmeal bath such as Aveeno, can also be very soothing to the itch. Be sure the bath is cool or lukewarm -- but not hot -- as heat tends to make the rash even more inflamed.

After the cooling (using any of the forms mentioned above) coat the rash with a shake lotion such as Calamine. This continues to relieve the itching and helps to dry up the blisters. Be sure to check the expiration date on an old Calamine bottle in your medicine cabinet, since it may not be effective after the expiration date. Be sure the shake lotion does not contain Benzocaine, zirconium, or a topical antihistamine, such as Benadryl. These can actually make the rash worse by producing their own allergic reactions when applied to already sensitive skin.

unfortunately not, you can go to the doctor and get a shot and it would heal alot faster

If you realize you've just come into contact with poison Ivy, take the following steps immediately:


Apply rubbing alcohol to the infected area.
Rinse with water (any water).
Wash up with soap and warm water.

You don't. First of all you have to stop the itch. Taking Benadryl and or using Benadryl cream is helpful. You have to continue to use it for more than a day or two.

Every time you scratch the poison Ivy you release more of the poison and toxin that keeps it inflammed. When you wash the area use a clean washcloth and towel each time. Change and wash the bed sheets often. This should help to clear it up
