Topical Poison Ivy/ Oak Remedies
"Leaves of three—let it be" is solid advice for avoiding poison ivy and poison oak, but sometimes contact with these plants is unavoidable. If you or your clothes have touched them, you may start to itch, develop a rash, and perhaps form blisters. If the rash is severe, see a doctor. If not, certain over-the-counter products may help relieve the itch and dry up any oozing. Also see topical analgesics.
