[pct-l] Poison Oak remedy

In response to John Driver's note about looking for poison oak remedies, I
can tell you that my husband got from his dermatologist a few years ago a
prescription ointment that is WONDERFUL. I didn't believe him til I tried
it, but you only put it on twice a day and after about the 2nd application,
the burning & itching are much relieved. And it all clears up after just a
few days. It is pricey, however.
It's called: Clobetasol propionate cream USP 0.05% (a synthetic
corticosteroid, an analog of prednisolone).
I'm definitely bringing some along along with some Tecnu to be used if I know
I touched the bush in anyway. (Also, previously when I knew I'd touched it -
I rubbed on a LOT of Dr. Bronner's soap just as if it was Tecnu. I think the
trick is to get the urishiol (sp?) off your skin as soon s possible.)
