    I have a bottle of what looks like handsoap. I think it is called Ivarest. It is white with green. Anyway, washing with it as soon as I come into the house really seems to work.

    My kids and hubby get into it all the time!! Always wash after you think you come into contact with it, and any thing that may have touched it. My hubby wipes his down with rubbing alcohol to dry it out, but with the kids I give them a warm bath with baking soda in it. Then I got a cream from the Amish called Chickweed Healing Salve and that stuff works awesome! Most of the time the Chickweed clears it right up and keeps them from itching. If they get it really bad I do all of that and give them benadryl. I'm not positive but I think you could get the chickweed off the internet, but mine I get from the Amish grocery store not far from my home. Here is the number off the can I have 1-888-530-7613 Hope you get rid of it that stuff is the pits!
