I contracted poison ivy about 2 1/2 weeks ago and have rx topical treatment and now oral steroids. THe original area is healing, but it has continued to spread. I am concerned that the oil is on my shoes and wonder if there are proven ways to remove it. If exposed to air for a period of time will the oil dry out? The pair of shoes of greatest concern are leather Birkenstock sandals so cleaning them could be tricky. Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!
