I have poison ivy on my neck and a little creeping up to my face. I've had poison ivy much worse before, but that was during the summer and now I have to find ways to deal with it during school. I've looked and there are a lot of remedies for reducing the itch. But my problem is, poison ivy not only itches, but it grosses me out. I don't like looking at it. But I especially can't TOUCH it. I'm trying to avoid any solutions that involve putting something on the rash. But what else can I do? During the school day it's TORTURE, and I can't stand the itch. Does anyone have any suggestions, on how to subdue and/or shorten the itch?
