DO NOT use this medication to treat poison ivy or oak. My dr says it should not be used at all. I have been suffering from blistered sun sensitivy arms since May exposure to both as a result of using topical benadryl. Have had two oral predisone and am now on topical predisone to cope with the problem. Had never had poison ivy since 4yr old. Should never have applied the benadryl topical to relive itch as it just caused it to get worse. Thinking that the poision ivy was worsening would reapply more compounding the problem. The label lists it as a treatment for these conditions.Read More Read Less
