    Where to buy Ivy Block?

    I ran out of Ivy Block and can't find a new supply. I thought I got it at CVS, but they had none. Then Robert said he bought it at Kroger, but they did not have it at either of the Bellevue Krogers. Any body bought any lately? I can't seem to say out of it lately, and weedeating at MB is dangerous without a good dose beforehand. I am still using the Technu for washing afterward, but the Ivy Block keeps me from having to rush home and shower.

    I know Amazon.com sells it as well.

    I ended up buying my Tecnu from Amazon as well since I can get a 32 ounce container from them.

    Climate Changes Are Making
    Poison Ivy More Potent
    June 26, 2007; Page D1
    Poison ivy, the scourge of summer campers, hikers and gardeners, is getting worse.

    New research shows the rash-inducing plant appears to be growing faster and producing more potent oil compared with earlier decades. The reason? Rising ambient carbon-dioxide levels create ideal conditions for the plant, producing bigger leaves, faster growth, hardier plants and oil that's even more irritating.

    Have you had more troubles lately with poison ivy exposure? Join a discussion. Plus, see a slideshow of poison ivy's many faces.
    Health MailboxAlthough the data on poison ivy come from controlled studies, they suggest the vexing plant is more ubiquitous than ever. And the more-potent oil produced by the plants may result in itchier rashes. "If it's producing a more virulent form of the oil, then even a small or more casual contact will result in a rash," says Lewis Ziska, a plant physiologist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Beltsville, Md.

    The latest research, led by Dr. Ziska, studied poison ivy plants in Maryland under different levels of carbon-dioxide exposure. One group of plants was exposed to about 300 parts per million of carbon dioxide -- about the same level found in the atmosphere in the 1950s. Another group was exposed to 400 parts per million of CO2 -- about the same level in the atmosphere today.

    After about eight months, leaf size, stem length and weight and oil content of the plants raised at current carbon-dioxide levels were, on average, 50% to 75% higher than the plants under the 1950s conditions, according to the study, expected to be published this year in the journal Weed Science. Not only did the higher CO2 level double the growth rate, but it made for hardier plants that recovered more quickly from the ravages of grazing animals.

    The latest research follows a Duke University report last year that higher carbon-dioxide levels create a chemical change in poison ivy that results in a more potent form of urushiol, the oil that triggers an itchy rash in about 70% of people exposed to it. "It is more abundant and allergenic," says Jacqueline E. Mohan, who led the Duke study and is now assistant professor at the University of Georgia in Athens.


    www.poison-ivy.org
    Poison ivy can be both shiny and dull -- even on the same stalk.
    Poison ivy is difficult to identify. Hikers have long known the adage "leaves of three, let them be." But poison ivy, usually found east of the Rocky Mountains, can sometimes have more leaves and look like a shrub or vine. The leaves can range from one to six inches, and be notched or smooth. Depending on the season, they can be red or green.

    One Web site, www.poison-ivy.org, offers cards with life-size images to help identify the plant in its various incarnations. Long pants, long-sleeve shirts and socks can help, but clothes need to be removed and washed to avoid contact with urushiol that may have brushed on clothing. The oil can penetrate rubber gloves and boots, so vinyl gloves are recommended if you're trying to remove the plants.

    One treatment, sold as IvyBlock, is rubbed on exposed areas before contact to prevent a rash. A 1995 study found the treatment prevented or significantly reduced poison ivy reactions.

    Despite protective clothes and washing, Yale nursing professor Patricia Jackson Allen still contracted a rash on her forearms after gardening this weekend. The precautions prevented a more severe rash, but "I haven't found anything that works 100% for me,'' she says.

    If you think you've come into contact with poison ivy, wash immediately. But if more than 10 minutes has passed, soap and water removes only about half the oil. A 2000 study found that Tecnu, an over-the-counter poison ivy wash, is about 70% effective in eliminating urushiol two to eight hours after exposure. Goop, a grease remover and Dial Ultra dishwashing soap were about 60% effective, according to a 2004 article in Pediatric Nursing. Rubbing alcohol also helps.

    If exposure does occur, over-the-counter topical lotions may provide some relief. Severe cases can be treated with steroids by a doctor.

    Which Kroger?

    I checked hwy 100 in bellevue, and they called pharmacy at Hwy 70 in Bellevue and neither said they have it, but both offered to order it for me. Would be nice tho have local source. Also checked REI, none there.

    Try a good slathering of baby oil, pre-ride/work. Seems to work for me.
