Comment:
My boyfriend had a really bad rash from poison oak. The rash was on his forearm and was inflamed, red and blistery. His said his arm was felt like it was on fire. The pharmacist at Costco recommended Zanfel. It was kind of pricey but he was desperate. I have to say now that you must read and follow the directions EXACTLY or it will not work. I know this because the first time it was applied al ... Show Full Comment

As much as I want to rave on about this product I am unable to. It contains tiny microbes of polyethelyne. This stuff is killing our water supply folks! Wake up

Comment:
I used the product exactly as directed 3 times a day for five days (when the tube ran out). $40 tube worked equal or worse than the $2 bottle of calming lotion right next to it. I had intended to buy the c alamine but was seduced by the box that claimed to relieve itching in 30 seconds to 3 minutes. Six days and an entire tube later, I am itching as I type this.

PART (1) my good friend worked at a pharmacy and said the pharmacist said it really works. Being so desparate for something I tried it after I had the poison oak for a few weeks already and tried it and it worked. It started drying up like in a few hours. I could almost feel the drying up on my skin. Could not believe it. I worked on my yard the other day and I think I have poison oak again. ... Show Full Comment
