How To Nullify Poison Oak At Home?

By Mathew Thomson

Nature is mostly very kind to humanity. But at times there are exceptions. Some of the natural products and the natural surroundings may bother you at the most unsuspected time and in an unexpected manner.

When you take a stroll over a sumac, you walk into these patches of poison oak with lots of expectation and wonderful happy feelings. But soon you may realize that these little plants are allergens to you.

Now you rush out of this grove, you are confused and wish to secure instantaneous relief from the plant-induced itchy suffering. Well, you need not go to the drug store for over the counter medications or visit your physician for certain prescription medication. Reach your kitchen and look out for the oatmeal container. Nature produces certain master strokes and oatmeal is one of them.

Now you have to be ready for the oatmeal bath. Cut a piece of nylon hosiery. At one end, tie a knot and loop over the bathtub. It should be done in such a way that hot water flows through the piece of hosiery. Take the bath slowly and steadily.

There is another way of doing it, if you don't like the bath procedure. Take a bowl and put hot water into it. Keep the oatmeal-filled hosiery into it for 15 minutes. Squeeze the bag many times and let the fluid escape as much as possible. When done, take a cotton wad and apply it gently to the affected part of the skin. You will find relief as the healing process begins immediately.

Another method to treat the skin inflammation caused due to the touch of poison oak or poison ivy is to wash the area with a good soap and water. Rinse it and do it repeatedly at least three times. Most of the poison will be washed away. You can also use alcohol in the same manner. Even rinsing the skin with water for a number of times will get you lots of relief.

The Jewelweed plant (touch-me-not plant) is another useful home remedy. Crust its leaves and stems and make a paste. Wash the affected area with cold clean water. Apply the paste gently all over the area. This is the time when your body requires the skin rejuvenating Vitamin C. Eat fruits and drink lots of milk.

Understand this poison oak is not a disease. It is just one of those happenings!
