Angry poison ivy

Soo after most of the summer passes, I read a post about poison ivy. I now have it -_- I get it every summer... No matter what but I've gotten through till now.,

So besides the super expensive stuff @ wal mart.... Anyone know of any home remedies for the itch ?

Prednisone is dirt cheap, and a family doctor will usually give you a prescription without an office visit for something as obvious as poison ivy/oak...

Hot hot hot water - as hot as you can stand (but not so hot it will burn!) - dribble it over the rash, start cooler & turn down the cold as your skin gets used to it - kills the itch for hours. It's the ONLY thing that works for me!

You don't have to run it for that long, just a minute or so once it's running hot.

I haven't had PI for a few years because I live in the city now (and somehow it didn't get me when I was putting up a fence for my sister), but as a kid after whipping the weeds along the fenceline once or twice a year I'd get one side of an entire shin or lower arm oozing & itchy - so gross and SO itchy - so I have plenty of experience.
