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
If you have further questions, please let us know.
