I was weeding my garden tonight and after pulling most of them out I noticed  poison ivy about 6" off the ground. I was wearing shorts, it is hot and steamy...I took an immediate shower ...is it too late for me or am I  just in time?. Any suggestions in case  I didn't get it all off me?. Right now nothing yet.
 Can't seem to find any info on PI  recent contact.

Wash yourself in Dawn. It cuts the urushoil (the substance on the plant that breaks you out) in poison ivy sometimes. I’ve been working on a golf course for 17 years and come in contact with it fairly regularly and am highly sensitive to it. If I catch it immediately and wash with Dawn I’m usually ok.

I have this product called tecnu. I got it at Wal-Mart. The directions say wash exposed skin 2 to 8 hours after exposure.  I have used it as a counter measure after helping mow an over grown yard with bunches of poison ivy. I did have long sleeves and pants on though.  It may help you if you can find it. It has mineral spirits in it. Good luck.

Crush it up and rub it on the rash areas.

Yes Mike , you are right.  I guess I should have elaborated.  I crush the stalk, it makes a slimy mess that reminds you of aloe goo. It is wonderful relief for poison ivy.

If nothing else you can rub the area down with rubbing alcohol. I'm pretty careful around the stuff and kill it off with poison ivy killer when I find it. Round Up or 2-4D don't seem to kill the whole plant like the specific ivy killer does.

Rubbing alcohol or witch hazel should help!

When you wash the area use cold water. The colder the better. I use automotive hand cleaner with pumice. It really cuts grease and scrubs it away in one step.

get water and make some mud and rub it on where you have it, unfortunately for me it was all over as i could not avoid it on the trail i was on., helped me while out mountain biking. i thought i was doomed but it worked as it was all i had and no poison ivy rash at all, very grateful.

Tecnu flat works. I keep it on hand all summer. I've had a systematic reaction twice and I'm half scared of the stuff.

Put Tecnu on before going out in the brush like you would sunscreen. Then a shower with Dawn dish soap.
I get exposed to it every summer and this combo works the best for me.

Sounds like you probably got it washed off in time.  The "active ingredient" in poison ivy is just an oil, so mild soap and water will take it off. There's a guy on youtube that swears by just using water and a microfiber cloth.

Yup. Using it like sunscreen works. Had a conservation forestry agent tell me this.

That sh** is nasty, if I as much as see it I have it and bad. Yeah that's bad. I remember as a young man, kid really,  me and my brother and good friend burnt a bunch of brush and that happened to be in it. Breathed some of it in by accident got that sh** internally. Spent three days in the hospital my nutts swelled up to about the size of baseballs. No kidding. I almost freak out when I see that NASTY SH**!  now, Lol no lie...I'm glad you managed to escape its wrath...

About 10 years ago I was mushroom picking in the woods, when I got home I began to itch something terrible.  Luckily next day was my doctor's appointment and as soon as I got there he rushed me to a dermatologist. The itch was on my bladder relief tube 😋  so she prescribed something that worked ok for me.
  The moral of the story, when in woods infested with Poison ivy  put on rubber gloves before you relieve yourself.

Northman-That happened to me in 1976 when I was doing the Oregon portion of the Pacific Crest Trail.  Must have gotten into some poison oak.  Was way too far from civilization to seek help so tried every salve I had in my first aid kit. Eventually it cleared up but I was one miserable puppy for a while.

I don't know much about the US version of poison ivy, but years ago while hiking in Peru I slipped on the mud, and went downhill into a thicket of the local variety of poison ivy...I was shirtless and in shorts, within 1/2 hour I was looking very lumpy and itchy from head to calfs, one of the guys recommended me to rub clay on it, and it seems to have worked well.
Can't sleep, squirrels will eat me....

If you need a Sun Flame Generator Model 100-107 ( for Sunflame lanterns models 105, 106, 107 and 110) give me a PM, I have close to 80 of those, 15 bucks each.
