Featuring Tecnu Products for the relief of Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, Poison Sumac

That Darn Itch

Many people who have suffered from the itch of poison ivy, poison sumac, or poison oak do not realize that it is the chemical uroshiol that cause the symptoms. Uroshiol was mentioned in a old Columbo detective series. In one episode Columbo was able to identify the perpetrator because she was wearing white gloves and scratching the hand that had been exposed to this nuisance.

Many people actually develop an allergic reaction or rash to this chemical. Some minor, some severe. We recommend that people consult a medical doctor depending on the severity of the skin reaction. This site was created because the webmaster's son experienced a very bad reaction to poison ivy. After careful research, products that were found to helpful received the honor of being shown on this website.

Unfortunately, uroshiol reactions can occur again and again long after a bad episode. We recommend that people keep their favorite product on hand so that they can take preemptive action. Exposure can recur from a favorite pet's fur touching you that was exposed to an uroshiol plant. Some people claim that they were exposed to the uroshiol from wind carrying sap from offending plants. Many people seem to get exposure while working in their garden not realizing that the weed they pulled was poison ivy, the most stealthy culprit because it always seem to look different and hard to identify. Clippers that cut poison ivy or tools that touch poison ivy can still have uroshiol on it a year later. This issue can be a problem that never seems to go away because items can come back to haunt us by re-exposing us to this nightmare.

We hope that our website is a useful resource for our visitors.

Tecnu® was developed in 1961, during the cold war years, by chemical engineer Dr. Robert Smith as a waterless cleanser designed to remove nuclear fallout dust from skin and clothing. His wife accidentally discovered that Tecnu would cleanse poison oak and poison ivy oils after exposure. Tecnu has become standard issue for outdoor professionals across the country in the treatment and prevention of poison oak and poison ivy. Since Tecnu's success, Tec Laboratories has continued to develop new products to cleanse, relieve, repel and protect.
