Domebro is an astringent powder that works incredibly well to soothe and dry out the itchy rash and bubbles and bumps caused by poison ivy. Mix as directed with water in a leftover container w/ a lid and dab with a dampened washcloth repeatedly. Do not rub at all. Just dab over and over and over and the itch will stop quickly and the rash will dry up. Fabulous stuff at Walgreen's.
Oral or topical steroids only block the body's immune response to poison ivy or oak, driving the symptoms deeper to perhaps reappear later in a more serious form. Get the homeopathic protocol that will bring true resolution
