I get poison ivy every summer. I recommend using a poison ivy wash first. I use Iverest cleansing foam. Now I know this next step may sound strange but after washing with the foam I apply a layer of New-Skin. It is a liquid bandage. Just remember to apply it with Q-Tips so as not to spread it. It seems there might be something to the fact that poison ivy needs air to itch and spread. It works for me. Keep using the wash 3 to 4 times a day.
