How do you treat a poison ivy rash?

ANSWER

To treat a poison ivy rash, use a cold compress, calamine lotion, non-prescription hydrocortisone cream, or an antihistamine to ease itching.

Call your doctor if the rash is near your eyes or covers a large part of your body.

Get emergency medical help or call 911 if you have a severe reaction.
