Tecnu Extreme Medicated Poison Ivy Scrub takes care of your poison ivy or oak rash. For effective relief of a poison ivy or oak rash, you need to remove the rash-causing oil and apply an anti-itch treatment. Tecnu Extreme is the first medicated scrub to do both in just one step.
Poison ivy, oak and sumac rash is caused by the skin's reaction to the plant's oil, urushiol. For effective poison ivy or oak treatment, you must first remove the urushiol oil to keep it from spreading, and also apply an anti-itch treatment to alleviate the painful, itchy rash symptoms. Traditionally this requires two products, but Tecnu Extreme can do both in one step. Washing with Tecnu Extreme for 15 seconds not only removes the rash-causing plant oil, but it also provides itch relief and soothes burning from poison ivy, oak and sumac rash.
