my husband has poison ivy on his arms. i keep reading that you cant give it to people by touching them after the oil has been washed off is that true? because our daughter is 3 months old and trying to do everything without his help and not letting him touch anything has been a pain.

also how long until it goes away? he got it tuesday and its not very bad just a few spots on his arms each spot is like the size of a quarter.

is there anything over the counter that he can use to help heal it wuicker? if so where can we get it. hes already using calomine lotion but its only stopping the itch...
