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 had a very bad case of poison ivy and was taking prescription prednisone and hydroxyzine for the itching and rash. Neither was helping and I was miserable. A friend told me about zanfel. Thank goodness! It worked wonders for me and left me itch free for the first time in a week! I would highly recommend it.

DON'T waste your money...this product actually made my poison oak worse, not better. It provided a little immediate itch relief, but after a very, very short time that wore off and the poison oak blisters grew in size, and places.

Comment:
I was in the Bahamas and came across a big mango tree. I picked several mangos and inadvertently got mango tree sap on my left forearm. Unbeknownst to me ... mango tree sap is extremely poisonous ... much more so than sumac or poison ivy. Within days my forearm was swollen, red and had blisters. My arm looked like I had third degree burns and felt like it! The itching and burning was nearly u ... Show Full Comment
