I hope someone out there has some advice for me and my family. My son contacted poison sumac four weeks ago and had to go to the emergency room it was so bad. He seemed to be fully recovered and a week and half later it rebounded and had to go to the doctor for another shot and another steroid pack. Yes, we tried the Zanfel and other ivy soaps, they seemed to help a little but not enough and for $40 an ounce????(not to mention the 10 tubes of hydrocortisone)and we are now showering with Palmolive every night. Now, I have had it for the past 2 weeks or more and I have gone through 2, yes 2 steroid packs and have had one shot. I thought we were getting ahead of it and my son has it AGAIN, and my husband has it and I am feeling some new bumps and itches. I think it will drive me insane!!!! I have washed sheets, etc.... What do I do??? Desperate
