Don't laugh at this one everyone but I'll tell my story and let you decide.....
I had Poison Ivy when I was a kid growing up in the back hills of Kentucky. I had gotten it so bad my hands were stiff and could not bend them and my
eye lids were puffed out, the only way I got rid of that was a friendly visit to the nearest Doctor for a shot.
But that's in the past but from time to time I do happen to get Poison Ivy.
I was getting ready to lay cement around the foundation of my house. at the time I also noticed that I had developed blisters on my wrists, I knew it
was Poison Ivy at the time but paid no attention.
At various times I had submerged my wrist into the cement, of course it stung like a wasp got hold of me. After 5 days of mixing and pouring cement, I
had noticed the poison Ivy on my wrist was almost completely healed.
So I took some powdered cement placed it in a air tight container and mixed rubbing Alcohol in with it, and when ever I get poison ivy i would go to
the medicine cabinet, get the container and dab it on.
This is a vary unorthodox way of taking care of poison ivy, I do admit, but compared to a doctors visit and paying an enormous bill, I try this first
and so far it works for me.
O.K. you can laugh now...........
