How to treat poison oak
Hildie 2014-12-05
One of the old wives tale when it comes to poison oak is that rubbing a banana peel’s inside on the affected area will provide immediate relief. Although there are no studies to prove this, the cooling properties of the banana peel can help you deal with all the itching.
You should also rinse the skin that came in contact with poison oak with cool water to prevent the pores from opening and allowing more toxic oils to seep in. If cold running water is available, place the affected area under it for at least ten minutes. It’s also important to keep the skin clean by using a dish soap to clear away the toxic oil and keep it from spreading.
