Does cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) cream help poison ivy?

Does cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) cream help poison ivy?

Probably so: Cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) is a combination of a steroid and a topical antibiotic. The steroid is probably the component that is doing the most for your reaction. I would avoid the topical antibiotic unless there is truly a bacterial infection that needs to be treated. The antibiotic portion carries the risk of an allergic reaction and can confound the clinical picture. ...Read more

Allergy shots can help as can oral allergy meds. There are eye drops that help a great deal also.
