Immunology shots for poison ivy

carla17(Z7 NC)April 24, 2007

Have you ever heard of these? I'm curious because there is only one allergy specialist here that offers these injections. My daughter has had lots of poison ivy and I am sick and tired of this. She has been on steriods several times for PI and it just seems she is highly allergic to it. HELP

Why don't you check out the allergy specialist? I am allergic to mosquitoes and take shots so I won't have a huge reaction.

Also there are surprising rules on taking care of yourself after you have been in poison ivy. I remember that you must wash with water first, not soap. Possibly all contaminated clothing must go through the dryer, and animals can carry it on their fur.

Can someone direct us to a site that describes exactly what to do?

I do have an appt. for the allergy doc. I just wanted feedback of anyone who's tried this. I've never heard about washing without water Sammy, that seems odd but what the heck.
