You have an unbelievable itch from poison ivy, oak or sumac. You
are standing in front of the first aid shelf at the pharmacy. As
you look over all of the options to relieve itching, you are
overwhelmed and confused by the choices. You have heard Tecnu brand
products are great for poison plant rash, but which one do you
The Tecnu brand has come up with a variety of solutions for
poison ivy, oak and sumac rash in an effort to meet everyone's
individual needs. Here is a breakdown of our top 4 best sellers to
help you choose the best fit for you:
Tecnu Original Outdoor
Skin Cleanser - this is a cleanser to wash off the plant's oil
that causes poison ivy, oak or sumac rash. You can use Tecnu
Original after you know you have been exposed to the plants and
before you get a rash, or you can use it after the rash has begun.
The cleanser will only remove the source of poison plant rash to
keep it from bonding to your skin. You can also use Tecnu Original
on other objects like tools, equipment, clothing and your pet's fur
to remove the oil from these surfaces.
Medicated Poison Ivy Scrub - this is also a cleanser to remove
the rash-causing oil but has the added benefit of a medicated
anti-itch ingredient. Tecnu Extreme is an exfoliating cleanser that
will cleanse deep to remove poison ivy, oak and sumac oil and
leaves behind a layer of Grindelia Robusta, commonly known
as gum weed, to relieve itching for hours.
Relief Spray with Scar Prevention - sometimes the poison ivy,
oak or sumac rash is so painful you don't want to touch it. Just
spray on Tecnu Rash Relief to help dry oozing, promote healing,
prevent scarring, and stop itching and pain without touching the
rash. It's great for those hard to reach places too!
Anti-itch Gel - a great anti-itch treatment to use after
washing with Tecnu Original. Similar to a more traditional
anti-itch remedy without the pink runny mess, Calagel offers hours
of itch relief with the added benefits of an antihistamine to
reduce swelling, an antiseptic to help prevent infection, and an
astringent to help dry out an oozing rash.
