Poison Ivy/ Sumac, etc

The best way to soothe the symptoms of poison ivy would be to use calomine lotion and/ or over the counter topical hydrocortisone cream to help it heal faster. Any areas that are oozy or crusty are best kept moist and covered with antibiotic ointment and non stick dressings. If there is significant pain it is worth seeing your doctor to make sure there is no infection! If it’s extensive it may even help to take a course of steroids by mouth. It is worth treating as I have seen untreated cases last months!
