Can dry cleaning the "affected" clothing kill all the urishol oil? I'm not sure and now I'm hesitant to wear the clothing again.

I feel for anyone who has ever been a "victim" of this horrible plant. This is my 3rd bout with the stuff (within 12 years). This time I've had to resort to a round of Predisonne and every imaginable anti-itch creme known. I've had this for 2 weeks, and still little patches are popping up. If this condition couldn't put someone "over the edge", I don't think anything could. With that said, I'm glad I happened on this site and now realize that many others are sharing my same agony.
