I got poison ivy so much as a kid from playing in the woods everyday. I eventually became immune to it. My 9 year old son is also immune to it, I know because all he wears is sandals discing.

I grew up as a wrestler, and was also a collegiate wrestler. We use a product call Ken Shield (made by Cliff Keen) that is used for wrestlers to keep individuals from getting nasty funk from the mats such as ringworm and impetigo.... but this cream also serves as a magic poison ivy barrier as well.

A canister of Ken Shield foam runs around $15, but it'll last a long time. It really is a great way to keep yourself from getting Poison Ivy/Oak, etc...

Here's an interesting video on removing poison ivy/oak/sumac oils from the skin, as presented by a guy with a PhD in a related field.



If you don't want to watch the whole thing, basically he says there's very little difference between the soap being used to clean the oils off: Dawn dishsoap works about as well as the expensive Tecnu. He does not test Zanfel, but I'd assume it'd fall into the same general efficiency realm as Tecnu, just from personal experience.

The key to successful oil removal is using a washcloth to create friction and wipe clean the oils after using soap and water (always use cold water).

Very simple, and lines up with my experiences as well...typically if I do a field scrubdown using Zanfel (without soap or a washcloth) and water, I usually still end up with a bit of a reaction (much much reduced from what I'd get if I did nothing).

But every time I've been able to get a shower and do a real good scrubdown with a wash cloth, I've been fine with no reaction.

Which backs up, albeit with anecdotal evidence, what the video purports.

Just thought I'd share it.

Excellent video. Someone posted it on DGCR a couple of years ago, but it's well worth posting again.

A good scrubbing with a washcloth using Dawn or Ajax dish soap works well. Try do do it ASAP after exposure so the urushiol first fully bind to your skin.

Once that happens, you're buggered.

Sorry for the repeat. Didn't see it first go around.

Was having probs with search finding the relevant thread at all, let alone being able to peruse them to see which might be best to post (or to see if it had been posted already).

It's all good. Poison ivy's mentioned in a bunch of different threads. I probably couldn't find that clip here if I wanted to.

Your post puts it in front of a bunch of eyes who may not have seen it before.
