5 Myths About Treating Poison Ivy Rashes

5 Myths About Treating Poison Ivy Rashes

Sam here from Itch Juice Poison Ivy Treatment.

In this post, we’ll outline 5 myths we have found online about the treatment of poison ivy rashes. It’s amazing what some people will do to cure this awful, awful rash…but we’re here to tell you what REALLY works.

Myth #1 – You need to touch poison ivy to get a rash
A common misunderstanding that we hear and see all the time is that people think they need to come into physical contact with a poison ivy plant to fall victim to a poison ivy rash or outbreak. This is not true.

Many of our customers have returned from hikes and camping trips without ever touching a single poison ivy plant, but have suffered from ugly red welts and painful itching. If you are allergic to poison ivy and you’re near a plant, you run the risk of a poison ivy rash breakout.

The myths we have outlined below could result in further, long term damage of your skin. Please note – this article has been compiled for entertainment purposes only and we do not recommend using ANY of the treatment methods outlined below.

Myth #2 – Homemade remedies are your only option
We have found dozens of homemade remedies online that sound like methods for washing dishes, rather than addressing a poison ivy rash. Here’s an example for you:

Step 1 – apply dish washing liquid to the affected area
Step 2 – let it dry
Step 3 – apply baking soda to the area
Step 4 – apply vinegar to the area
Step 5 – expect a chemical reaction
Step 6 – remove this from the skin
Step 7 – wait 3 – 4 hours for rash to subside

Not only does this sound like a hair-brained science experiment, but it seems like a lot of effort and long waiting time for dealing with poison ivy rash. We think that poison ivy treatment should be an easy fix.

Myth #3 – Calamine lotion is the only remedy that works.
Err – wrong! We have tested dozens of the remedies that we’ve found online, including cold compresses and all of our competitor’s products.

We have found that different people have different reactions to treatment and there are a number of variables that can affect this. These variables include skin sensitivity, proximity to plant and time taken to treatment. It pays to keep an open mind about ways to treat rashes from poison ivy.

Myth #4 – Rest pennies in vinegar to create a magical chemical compound.
This is ACTUAL advice we found by looking through online forums. One reader claimed that soaking 40 pennies in a cup of vinegar and creating a chemical compound from this concoction would result in a magical cure. This is an old wive’s tale and is simply incorrect.

There is so scientific evidence to back this claim and unless you’re a chemist or like to perform science

experiments with your skin as the test subject, we strongly advise you avoid his method of poison ivy treatment.

Myth #5 – Using gasoline or bleach on your skin is a poison ivy cure.
This is another ludicrous and downright dangerous claim.

Let’s take a moment to consider the implications and danger of pouring gasoline or bleach on yourself or a member of your family. There are critical risks involved in doing this, including accidental ingestion, exposure to eyes or sensitive areas of skin and of course, the fact that gasoline is a flammable liquid.

Please do not ever try this at home.
