There is no cure for the poison oak or poison ivy rash once it begins, only relief of the symptoms.

Avoid further contact with the plant oil if possible. Be sure to wash the area with Tecnu Extreme™ Poison Ivy Scrub.

Clean your tools, clothing and pets that have been exposed to the poison oak, ivy or sumac with Tecnu to avoid recontamination from the urushiol oil.

Minor itching, pain, oozing and swelling caused by poison oak and poison ivy can be relieved with over-the-counter anti-itch treatments such as Tecnu Rash Relief™ spray, Calagel® medicated anti-itch gel or Corticool® 1% hydrocortisone gel. In severe cases, a physician can prescribe antihistamine creams, tablets or shots.
