I've gotten poison ivy for just about a month now and got the steroid shots and prescription cream. Could there be a easier way of treatment?

In brief: Unfortunately no

Other than avoidance, the medications that you have taken provide the best and quickest form of relief.
When possible try to cover up as much as possible when you are in areas where poison ivy may be prevalent. However, that can be quite uncomfortable in the summer months.
