Tecnu for Poison Ivy is the Miracle I have been looking for.
I recently dug up some wild Cherry tree saplings in the woods to transplant. Where these saplings were located was a big problem. As I surveyed the area there was no way to get to the saplings without wading in knee deep poison ivy. It was everywhere, on the ground, and climbing trees with root systems intertwined with all the other vegetation.
I was as careful as possible and dug up two Cherry tree saplings. I really thought I had pulled it off without getting hit by the poison ivy. That was until the next day. It started off as an annoying itch following by redness and the typical welts. Two days later as I was driving to Florida, it was unbearable. Every book or site you look at will tell you not to scratch it. That’s like saying don’t sing along to Sweet Home Alabama, some things just can’t be helped.
Within a couple days I had it all over, everywhere I scratched. Then my sweet daughter came to the rescue. She told me that my son-in-law had a bad case of poison ivy a few months earlier and that someone recommended Tecnue to him and it WORKED!! That’s all I needed to hear, she gave me the bottle and sweet relief came instantly. I couldn’t believe how fast the pain went away and the quick healing process after using Tecnue.
Over the years I have tried everything on the shelf and all the home remedies. Nothing worked, you might get a couple minutes of itch relief but that is it. Actually, the only thing that sort of helped some was vinegar and scratching. It created a different kind of pain which was a relief to some degree.
Make sure you follow the directions. You must wash it off after applications. Skipping this step will result in limited effects. I used it about three to four times the first day and then twice the second day and that was all that was needed.
It is important to have this in your medicine cabinet. If you apply it when you know you have been in contact with poison ivy or poison oak, you most likely will get away with no symptoms.
No need for me to write a list of pros and cons on this review, the pro is it works well and fast, I have nothing to report regarding cons. Please click the link below and give it a try.
