Baking soda mixed with a little water into a paste, its a known neutralizer and stops skin irritations. Its cured a few plant caused rashes for me.

The guys I work with rub isopropyl alcohol on the affected areas, and can usually get a couple hours without it itching. I wouldn't recommend rubbing that "everywhere" It kind of sounds like it's time to suck it up and see a doctor though.

I can't speak from experience though since I've only been around the stuff this year, and have only had direct physical contact with it about five times now and so far no reaction.

I had it bad once. On my face, swelled up and looked like an asian. When I start to get it now I go in the shower with a bottle of isopropyl alcohol and scratch it til it bleeds, you get the pleasure of itching it that way, then pour the alky on it so it stings. That usually takes care of it for me now.

Head to the ER or the dr's office before the end of the week and get some real meds for that. You'll thank yourself.

i just got over a pretty bad case as well. i scrubbed it in the shower with a dish washing scouring pad and a lot of soap until it bled, and then i sprayed bleach on it... hurt so bad words couldn't describe it, but it was nothing but dried up scabs in 3 days. no calamine lotion needed. But be warned...IT BURNS BAD:bawling: but it works

Sounds like this guy will have scabs on him from head to toe if he goes that route. I used to itch mosquito bites til they bled was the best wayto get them to stop itching.

This, If it's as bad as you say it is.

Last time i got it, the only thing that stopped it was Brake Cleaner.
break it open. spray.

yes, it hurts.

that was desperation. after trying everything else. and i do mean everything.
