Zanfel didn't work particularly well for me. and it is expensive. I am extremely sensitive to Poison Oak - this is my third outbreak this year. My Doctor gave me the prednisone tablet series on the first two go rounds, and cortisone cream on the second - but refused the tablets for this outbreak. He believes the cure is worse than the disease. The prescription cream, "FLUOCINONIDE" stops the itch fairly well. I scrub with TECNU skin cleanser twice daily, then rinse off in a cool shower - also helps to relieve the itch. You might try HYLANDS RhusTox - an oral med that helps to settle the nerves. This has been a life saver for me. The best advice so far - AVOID IT AT ALL COSTS.
