Ivy Wash & Dry – Washing & Rinsing
For complete directions for use, click here.
This oil soap removes the urushiol from the skin which causes the rash. Best done before bedtime in the shower, rub the affected area with Ivy Wash & Dry until it no longer itches, or about 30 seconds. Then, thoroughly rinse area with extremely warm water to assure that all the oil suspended in the product is rinsed away completely.
Drying & Covering
After washing and rinsing, do not dry washed rash area with towel. Quickly dry surrounding area and wrap, or cover and tape, with a clean cotton cloth to absorb any drainage that will probably occur. You may cut off the sleeves of long-sleeve tee shirts for your calves and the calf part of tall cotton crew socks for your arms to serve as wraps. In the morning remove wrap or cover, throw them in the washer, and wash with hot water and detergent before reuse and go about your day.
Re-Wash If Necessary
If new blisters appear and/or itching begins again, repeat the process again in the shower before bedtime. Rarely does the process have to be repeated after the second washing and covering. If the rash still waters but doesn’t itch, continue to cover the affected area at night to absorb the liquid. If it doesn’t water and the itch has extremely subsided, the healing has begun and there is no need to continue washing with Ivy Wash & Dry. Note: When healing, there may be an itch but will feel more like a scab would itch than a rash itch. Only use Ivy Wash & Dry again if the rash itches as though it has not been treated. Follow the directions completely that will come shipped with Ivy Wash & Dry. Missing any of the steps could result in delayed healing or spreading to other parts of the body through improper washing or rinsing.
