Poison Ivy Rash

I have a poison ivy rash, and it wasn’t even from MY garden!

I haven’t dealt with the poison ivy in my garden yet.  Instead, I pointed out some to my mother in HER garden, and I brushed the plant.


I scrubbed my arm with Dawn dish soap and cold water, and I’ve been putting caladryl on it, but it’s still pretty miserable.  And even with scrubbing, I still managed to spread it onto my chest and stomach.

Suggestions?  How do you deal with poison ivy?  Inquiring minds want to know!
