I may have simply not come across this remedy for the itching on the website, but I have found it to be very effective in aiding relief and drying poison ivy patches. Peel a banana and eat it (not related but good for you!), turn the peel inside out and rub directly on poison ivy patch. Inexpensive, easy to find and quick to work. Especially if you need fast relief in the middle of the night or while waiting for a Dr. appt. I have tried lots of other home remedy quick fixes, but aside from cotizone injection, (obviously not a home remedy or a first choice) this is the only find that has a mentionable effect on my skin.
