My skin where the poison oak is located is drying out and my skin is so dry that's cracking. I didn't know if I should stop using the extreme? If you know of anything that I can put on it so my skin to make it better without spreading the rash. P.S. Your product is fantastic


Thank you first of all for the complement. We are glad Tecnu Extreme is working for you. To answer your question about drying your skin, yes if you keep washing with Tecnu Extreme it may be drying your skin. I would stop washing with Tecnu Extreme and apply a moisturizing lotion to the area. Petroleum jelly (Vaseline) may be good to put on it as well.

If you have been washing with Tecnu Extreme, the urushiol should be gone and therefore your rash should not spread anymore.  If you find your rash does spread, then you are coming in contact with the poison ivy or oak plant's oil (urushiol) again.  Urushiol can stay on surfaces such as tools, clothing, pets fur, etc. for a very long time. You may need to decontaminate those items as well.

If you have further questions, please let us know.
