Home Remedy: Poison Ivy

I have found an awesome home remedy for poison ivy. Jacob is highly allergic and boy does it spread like wildfire when he gets it. So I did a little research and found that if you mix egg whites and cornstarch, you get a great at home remedy for it.

All we did was mix 2 egg whites with enough cornstarch to make a paste. Smeared it on, let it sit till it dried and cracked and then washed it off. It's that simple! (He also showered beforehand with Dawn soap which is another great thing to use for poison ivy.)

He said it took the itch out almost immediately and this morning, the poison ivy seemed less red and is on it's way to healing. We will do one more treatment tonight and see if we can knock this stuff out!

So if you or a loved one are allergic, give it a try....

What would we do without google?!! :)
