Poison Ivy Tips (?)
Posted 07 April 2012 - 05:59 PM
I got it some how and now I would like very much to get rid of it.
Any tricks that anybody uses out there to get rid of it fast?
Fire! I wonder if fire fire will work?

I feel your itch as on who used to get it all the time. I do not get it as much since I wash up after being in the brush and shed any clothes I was wearing. That won't help you now that you got it.. My second trick to kill the itch is using Solarcain sunburn spray or Americain ointment. Benadryl and Cortizone creams will help too.

Do a quick web search, opening up that stuff or heating it aint the answer.

A good friend of mine spoke with a tree doctor and says that the tree doctor uses bleach.
I may try the bleach if this Tecnu stuff doesn't give me the results I want.
Now that I know using bleach is doctor approved that is.

One more reason to kayak -- keeps me away from the vegetation!

Funny thing is I am dead serious about brake cleaner.
Brake cleaner, don't be ridiculous, but now automatic transmission fluid......there's a winner!

It does everything else; so it should work.
....and after spraying the infected areas with WD-40, I will then wrap those same areas with duct tape.

I used brake fluid once. I'll never do it again.
Thanks for the heads up.

P.s. I'm not a fan of pain if that helps. Bleach doesn't feel good either.
You could also try a branding iron or a fillet knife. Scarring isn't permanent with the right plastic surgeon...

I assume you guys are wearing waders when crashing through brush etc. Do you then contact your waders with your hands etc?
Is it your hands or legs or what?
If you're not wearing waders then I get it. (I think)

Wife don't believe that though. Of course i had to have gotten it from fishing. Yes wear waders when fishing and I also wear a hat too.
When cut down the large weed I had no hat on. After 26 years of marriage I"ve learned not to argue.
