When I was a kid my friends and I got it all the time because we were always out playing in the woods -- we would actually get a shot in the beginning of the summer to help reduce the chance of getting it ( I supposed that's what it did).

Now, I can roll around in it and it doesn't bother me.

Odd, isn't it?

Its a constant battle around here. I've got a mother vine with the base bigger around than my forearm. She keeps spreading her seed somehow. I battle hard with my cheap doubled up 41% Gly concoction.

If it's still spring where you are, cover up completely, take an axe to the vine and while he cut is still fresh, pour your solution over the cut surface.  Should get sucked down into the roots and kill it out.  Works for me.  Seed gets spread via birds, who eat the berries and crap them out - does them no harm

According to some old woodsy hoot on an internet YouTube video, the oil that's responsible for the rash can be washed off the skin with dawn soap and a washcloth just have to get it before two hours after exposure.  


He said you have to treat it just like your cleaning grease off your skin- lots of soap and rub hard.

Granular laundry detergent works, so does lava, both provided you get to it soon after exposure.  Wet soaps only spread the oil.  The rub hard part works.

I've seen that you need to get it as soon as 15 minutes after exposure.  I didn't even know I had poison ivy in the yard until I started getting the itch, then came the weepy rash.  Perfect timing...just as I was leaving for Europe for 9 days.
