Poison oak? Wildflower 🌈 1 child; Oregon 7065 posts

Anyone know if benedryl or claritin (sp?) will help make poison oak less itchy??



SO was clearing some bushes at my grandmas house, but he never watches out for poison oak since he never gets it, but when he comes inside he touches me and I wash his laundry so I get it all over my arms!



I could barely sleep last night :(

you can get some of this at any drugstore and it helps dry it up.

Yep. Benadryl and Calamine lotion were what I used.

yes, if you take a benedryl then use the calamine it'll help tremendously.

You should get some Tecnu. It stops the spread of poison oak and helps with the itching.

Do you know I'd non drowsy Claritin would work the same as benedryl?? Benedryl makes me extremely tired and I need to have energy to take care of LO
