    Default Poison Ivy

    Does anyone know if bee stings would help relieve poison ivy?

    I have a bad breakout in between my fingers and a little on my palm. Its in the blister stage now so I may be too late to help it.

    Default Poison Ivy

    I know a beek that makes beeswax lotion bars that swears they work on lots of things including poison ivy. If you want I can get you his address in Kansas? I was in a bunch of ivy vines today hanging a trap up in a portable deer stand. I'm not itching YET!

    I have never tried either. I don't react to poison ivy. I would think propolis would work better than the venom. Heat it with honey until they will mix together.

    Thanks, I may try the propolis. I tried honey alone but its such a sticky mess and the relief doesn't last but a few minutes.

    I'm extremely allergic to Poison Ivy. Been hospitalized twice for it along with Poison Oak. They told me once I had poison sumac, but I didn't see any around. Still was miseable for three weeks! I did try what one guy called poison ivy honey. Tasted like he got it from the store.

    I eat a lot of anti histamines. But no epi-pen or the like.

    Oh yeah, I forgot, I also wash the dickens out of myself with soap and water when I know I've gotten into it. Usually within ten minutes.
