My mom has poison ivy bad, head to toe! She has been to the doctor twice, had 2 shots and a pack of steroid pills, and its still all over her, and its driving her nuts. 

Does anybody have any remedies for poison ivy, she is willing to try anything!

Baking soda paste! Let it set and dry. It will dry it up. Jewelweed will grow where ivy and oak etc. grow. Cut it open and spread on skin. And tell her to not touch.

Oh I've dealt with this numerous times! It's the worst. You just have to let it run it's course and go away on its own. Usually takes 1-2 weeks.

There a foam soap called Ivrest at Walmart and it works great. My dd and I had it really bad on our faces one year and it was gone in about 4 days.

I hope she gets relief soon!

I had a bad case of chiggers around my shorts area. OMG! I could've died! Fuck chiggers or anything itchy!
