Tecnu Extreme® Medicated Poison Ivy Scrub
The manufacturer recommends Tecnu Extreme be used within 2-8 hours after exposure to poison ivy, oak and sumac plants. The skin rash that these plants create is caused by a natural chemical called uroshiol. Removal of uroshiol is important to prevent further havoc of the symptoms such as painful, itchy inflamed rash. Tecnu Extreme will help treat and prevent the skin reaction from exposure to this chemical. A 15 second wash with this product will remove urushiol before it spreads. It also helps relieve itching and sooth a burning rash caused by uroshiol with a unique homeopathic formula.
