Health Tip: Prevent Poison Ivy Rash

(HealthDay News) -- Poison ivy may be difficult to avoid, but it is possible to prevent the itchy rash even after being exposed to the plant.

If you think you've come in contact with poison ivy, follow these suggestions from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration:
Stay outside until your skin has been properly cleaned.
Cleanse skin with a generous amount of rubbing alcohol.
After the rubbing alcohol, rinse your skin thoroughly with plain water.
Shower, washing the skin thoroughly with soap and water.
Wash clothing with rubbing alcohol and water to remove any residue from the plant.
