I'm completely shocked and never expected this . I had mixed feelings about buying this cream since it was so cheap, but for $5 I figured I'd give it a chance. I have extremely sensitive fair skin, and got poison ivy the worst I've ever had it in my life. The biggest and worst spot is a 6"x2" patch on my cheek/neck - and I was worried about it scarring, as I've been using regular calamine lotion on it for a week with no real improvement or change in size. I washed my face at midnight and then applied the cream. It burned at first which made me instantly panic and want to wash it off , but then I felt immediate cooling relief and the itching stopped right then!! Just now - 12 hours later, as the cream was starting to flake off, I washed my face again so I could reapply it. The patch on my face and neck had gone down and the scaly redness that was everywhere had gone down too!!!! I could not be more thankful that I gave this a shot and will swear by it from now on!
