Got it Saturday putting up a tree stand and im willing to do what ever it take to make the itching stop and the rash go away.

Anyone have any good home remedies or suggestions?

The following is a transcript of an email from a botany professor I had.

The plant I use is called jewelweed or touch-me-not. Impatiens biflora is the latin name. I put it in the blender (leaves and stems) with a little water and make juice. It lasts longer if you keep it in the refrigerator.
There is also a good commercial product - the one I have right now is called anti-itch clear. Its a walgreen's brand. Any of the CLEAR, gel-like products that come in a tube are pretty good. I've never had luck with calamine lotion. This stuff I have has pramoxin hydrochloride, alcohol, camphor, and citric acid in it.

I picked some up too, on my wrists mostly. I get it 3-4 times per year.

Wash immediately after exposure, then leave it be. Don't scratch, that is all.

So...do you drink that stuff, or spread it on like lotion?

I have had luck with Technu (when you know you've been exposed and want to wash it off), and limited success with Zanfel (sp?) for when the itching and rash have already started.

Try Ivy dry.
