    I am looking for someone who can testify to the effectiveness of Allstop poison ivy products. Also, do you have any other great remedies for poison ivy, lets hear them?

    I had shoulder surgery on the 10th and picked up PI at some point last week. I am highly allergic to PI and I am one miserable sack of crap right now. The timing couldn't be worse. I MUST find some way to shorten the life cycle of this PI, because I have to start Physical Therapy next week at the latest.

    It's hell nursing my shoulder wounds and PI at the same time.

    I've had friends use it that said it worked great. 24-36 hours significant relief. Others that had no results, or just as good results with "OTC" products.

    I can't attest to either. I'm seem to be fairly immune to PI. I've been waist deep in it, in the height of the growing season, and barely came away w/ a mild 24 hr rash.

    Sympathies to ya though.

    My grandma used to swear that a banana did the trick. Un-wrap it and smear the inside of the peel over the area. I never got the chance to try it and hope it stays that way.
