Mupirocin is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. It  is not effective against viral, fungal or other types of  infections. Poison Oak, as well as poison ivy and sumac cause a  skin rash called allergic contact dermititis. Mupricocin would not  be effective against it. Calamine...
An application of a pesticide such as Roundup that contains the active ingredient glysophate may kill poison ivy [Toxicodendron radicans]. A severing of the plant from its roots may be effective. Forest and park services often do that to control poison ivy as a thick vine growing up trees. A...
Yes, depending upon the situation. It's considered a medical emergency any time that poison ivy attacks the face and the neck. It's also considered a medical emergency any time that the vapors are inhaled. Fire may be a way of controlling poison ivy. But it's a poor choice, for the vapors are even...
I don't know about sun exposure, but I do know how poison ivy works, which may help. When an allergic person comes in contact with the powders or oils of the plant, he/she begins to have a reaction. As long as the oil or powder remains on the skin, the rash can spread and worsen. Upon exposure or...
No, poison ivy [Toxicodendron radicans] and poison oak [Toxicodendron diversilobum and Toxicodendron pubescens] aren't the same. What they are is related. They share the same genus [Toxicodendron], which is like people who share the same last name. But they aren't in the same species [radicans,...

Poison Ivy is not contagious. It cannot be spread from person to person. It spreads by the oils from the plant. If you do not clean your skin well after contact or if you come into contact with clothes, garden tools, etc. that still have the oil on them, you can break out in other places. Even a...

Best way it to pull it up roots and all. If you have axis to heavy equipment you can dig up roots then hook cable or chain to the roots and pull out large clumps at a time. I am going to try a crossbow herbicede with a round up combo to see if it will kill it. So far nothing has killed it other then...
No, you only get the poison from the plant.    All three plants have an oil that if it still is on the person or  clothes, then yes you can. Once a person has shed their clothes and  taken a shower, the oil is gone and and you can't spread the rash.  Some people get poison ivy from their...

This is a delayed hypersensitivity response. I.E. T cells and macrophages.
Combine baking soda and vinegar and rub it on the rash. Or (BeatlesFan1999's answer) if it is a big rash, do that. If it is small like just on the palm of your hand, buy jumbo band-aids from Rite Aid, put some tooth paste on the soft part, rub it around on the soft part so it covers it, than place...

Bad things happen. Don't eat poison ivy.
The rash associated with poison ivy in humans is actually due to an allergic reaction, and not all humans are allergic to it. For the most part, dogs do not develop allergic reactions to poison ivy.However, if your dog does have a reaction to poison ivy, your best option is to give him/her a bath in...
no don't wash your hair. it's always better for you to go to the doctors and first check it out.

On the skin..... You use polysporine.
Green. It is brown when dead. The thing that distingunguishes it as poison ivy is the number of leaves, not the color. As the saying goes, " Leaves of three, leave it be." Poison ivy has a chemical(urishol) that gives most ppl a rash when they touch it.
Not really. Candida is a yeast (fungus) while poison ivy is a flowering plant. The yeast is a living organism that is attempting to colonize your body while poison ivy simply exudes an irritating oil that causes an allergic reaction on exposed skin. Poison ivy usually affects only skin while candida...

The key word here is poison..... "poison oak" and yes, it can make you sick, hallucinate, have a fever and be fatigued for a couple of weeks.

Yes. The oil that causes the poison ivy rash can be moved to any part of your body by hand contact.If you get it on your face or lips inside your mouth you should seek medical help.
It depends on what you mean. if you are on Poison ivy, and you kiss a Police officer, then they will faint and die. or if like in the story for when robin gets sprayed, he will love her.
I dont see why you would want to, but why would you you want to buy poison Ivy if you can just take it off in a forest? __ No good plant nursery will supply this. It's a noxious weed not something people are encouraged to grow.
As far as I can tell from my internet research, there is no poison ivy (Toxicodendron radicans) in the Philippines. However there are far more dangerous plants there such as the Stinger (Dendrocnide Moroides), the Poison Arrow Tree (Antiaris Toxicaria), the Cashew Tree (Anacardium occidentale), and...
They won't pass on the poison ivy if they bathed and changed clothes to get the oil from the leaves off of them.   If, however, the first person touches the other person soon after initial contact, it's entirely possible the other person may also be afflicted.
Yes the only animals to be allergic to poison ivy are humans.

  You can use cortizone. This comes in a tube for skin rashes. If the itch is very bad you can soak in a tub of warm water and (believe it or not) oatmeal. Yes, pour in a box of oatmeal and soak in the water for an hour and this will help ease the itching. Make sure you pat dry and not wipe dry...

Although it's difficult to get on mucus glands, it is possible to get poison oak on your vulva. It's difficult, I believe, to get it internally. If you have a bad case, there will be a LOT of clear ooze coming from your vagina. Also, it will be very inflamed and swollen. If this should happen, see a...
Poison oak usually has five leaves and will sometimes have a redish tint to it, while poison ivy has three leaves and is green.
I live close by the woods and have a cat and dog, so I have been through poison ivy LOTS of times. Sometimes I scratch them open, which makes curing it very hard. Most creams/ sprays may stop the itching, but they don't get rid of the poison ivy. I reccomend Ivy Dry. If you have scratched it open,...

I had the same symptoms which turned out to be "erysipales", which is treated with antibiotics. Other conditions can arise from erysiales even after symptoms have disappeared.
Yes, in the early stages it can. When the oil of the plant, urushiol, remains on the skin, skin to skin contact with the affected area may spread the rash from person to person. It can also be spread through unwashed clothing that was in contact with urushiol from the plant or the skin. Once the...
Yes , you can use clobetasol propionate in the treatment of allergic reactions to poison ivy [ Toxicodendron radicans ]. But it's very potent. It can't be used for more than two weeks at a time. It requires a doctor's prescription.
If your skin comes in contact with the other person's rash, yes.

Anyone can get Poison Ivy if you are allergic to it.
yes, because if you burn poison ivy the ashes you inhale will swell up your throat and cause to choke and can lead to death.
The rash itself is not contagious, and the fluid in the blisters does not spread the rash. Poison ivy dermatitis appears as soon as four hours or as long as 10 days after the exposure, depending on individual sensitivity and the amount exposure. As the rash appears, any sensitivity a person had...
Yes! I broke out in a rash very much like poison ivy. After talking to several people, one mentioned pokeweed. I looked it up on the Internet only to find out that was the "weed" I had been pulling out of my yard for the past week! The only thing I can figure out is that the birds have carried it in...

Be certain to thoroughly wash all affected body parts with cold water and strong detergent soap (never use hot water as it opens up skin pores driving the urushiol resin still deeper inside your skin). Never pop or rupture the blisters. Keep affected areas clean and open to the air, allowing them to...
Left to grow at it's own pace, Poison Oak will turn into thick vines that climb more than 50 feet up large trees and eventually kill them, by depriving them of sunlight. I've personally seen vines that are 4 inches thick, and 9 inches in circumference. Left to grow that large, these vines present a...
