What are good remedies to treat a rash from poison oak?

Wash off resin first. You should wash off the plant resin first. Get a soap called Tecnu and wash off the resin. You have to use it immediately after exposure (within the 1st hour) before the resin absorbs into your skin. That will minimize the amount of resin that you react to. Once the rash is entrenched then you have to use steroid creams (hydrocortisone) or a steroid pill from your doctor (Prednisone or Medrol)

My daughter has a rash from poison oak. Someone told her to scratch it and put bleach on it. She did and now she feels sick.

Bad advice. Never listen to anyone who tells you to intentionally traumatize your skin! now keep it clean, use topical calamine lotion to dry it up, use topical cortisone cream to help with itch, and if really itchy and those not helping, take oral Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to try and settle the reaction. Very rare instances need oral steroids. Read more...
