Use Vodka to Treat Poison Ivy

Poison ivy contains oil called urushiol. When this oil touches the skin, many people develop an allergic reaction that causes a rash. There is an easy way to treat the itch that poison ivy cause. All you have to do is pour the vodka right away on the skin that has come in contact with poison ivy. The alcohol from the vodka washes away the itchy oil that causes poison ivy called urushiol oil.

I've read this article from the Daily Green website.

I knew Vodka was good for something other than drinking. Did the article say if Vodka would help later after you've started breaking out?

Thanks for the tip.

Vodka is used during early Middle Ages as medicine Because of a high alcohol content.

No it didn't say that vodka would help after the skin starts breaking out. The vodka is just an immediate remedy to help you stop the itch ones your skin come in contact with the poison ivy.
