poison ivy?

What is the most natural remedy? Can you cure it or do you have to just wait it out?

  • If you have it where you live jewel weed (the young plants) has a sap that soothes poison ivy.

    It grows wild around where I live, but in some places you can get it at a plant nursery. My younger brother likes to use that when he gets poison ivy.

  • you pretty much have to wait it out. if they are bad, doctor can give you a shot but most times they won't
