Hi, i have poison ivy ( been about a week now) and sometimes the itch is unbearable..i heard that using a blowdryer on the itchy area is a good way to relieve the itch ( it definately is) but i want to know if the heat will actually make the rash worse since i read that hot water can make the oil seep in deeper...so is blowdrying to relieve itch a remedy or an enemy?
