    Scratch the hell out of it, then douse it with rubbing alcohol. It'll take your mind off the itchyness.

    But really, I'm ultra alergic to poison ivy, so I feel your pain, and I've never found anything that even resembled a miracle cure. Tough it out.

    yea rubbing alchochal it makes you all "airy" feeeling and it dries the rash to get rid of it more, cold showers are the way to go to

    scratch it a bit then naptha... burns a little bit but dries it out pretty well then put a poultice of baking soda and water on overnight. That will take care of most of the itch.

    i get poison ivy pretty bad too, i think the best remedy seems to be salt water. tried an oatmeal bath once when i was legitly covered, but didnt work to great. i know i guy who swears that gasoline will clear it faster but i'm not willing to try it..

    Yep, I actually have done it for poison oak. Don't know exactly what differences there are with poison ivy. The idea with the baking soda or oatmeal) is to draw out the oil I believe.

    I thought dryign out your skin was the point. But bleach might go a little far, but I bet it would work.
