If you have had the rash for a while and it is not spreading,
then you may have already removed the plant's rash causing oil,
urushiol. After showering for many days, your soap may have finally
removed any oils that are not bonded with your skin. The rash is
your body's reaction to this bond. If your rash is spreading then
you may want to use one of our cleansers.
The purpose of the Original Tecnu Cleanser is to remove urushiol,
but it does not include any anti-itch medication. Again, if your
rash is not spreading, this product won't do anything for you at
this point. However, Tecnu Extreme Poison Ivy Scrub removes
the rash causing oil and treats the itch and helps dry up the rash.
If your rash is itching and oozing, you may find success with the
Other products we make that will help with itching and oozing
but do not contain a cleanser to remove rash causing oil are Tecnu Rash
Relief Spray or Calagel - your preference here depends on
whether you like a calamine-type anti-itch medication (Calagel) or
a homeopathic anti-itch remedy (Tecnu Rash Relief Spray). If
you have had some success with tea tree and your rash is not
spreading, I would recommend trying Tecnu Rash Relief Spray.
