hi, I have had Poison Suman for 6 days now and have only applied calamine lotion to my parts of the body affected. I have used TECNU which is suppose to remove the oils. ( not sure if it is working or not. ) What I would like to know is should I throw away my sneakers, jeans, and shirt I wore when I got the Poison Sumac? I read the oil will stay on in most cases. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am still wearing the jeans which were washed and the sneakers. Should I stop?
