Oatmeal dries up poison ivy well There are oatmeal based medicines over the counter. Coffee also works but not as well. Make a thick oatmeal base and cover it on the infected area and leave it on until it dries. If it is a really large area on legs or just too big to cover than put a cup of oatmeal in a warm bath and just sit in it. When you get out of the tub lightly pat dry with a towel. Rubbing alcohol also works but burns. I get poison ivy yearly so I have tried pretty much everything and so far this is most affective. Continue oatmeal baths or spread until clears up.
