2. Apple cider vinegar
This remedy hasn’t been proven, but some say that it can help to heal up the healing time and provide relief for the itching. Apply apple cider vinegar to a cotton swab and dab it over the affected area. Supposedly, doing so draws out the toxins from the oil in poison ivy, neutralizing them. There is a risk that should be noted: apple cider vinegar is very acidic, so there is the potential that it could cause damage to the skin barrier, which nourishes the skin by trapping in moisture and reduces the chances of developing an infection. If you are going to try this remedy, do so with caution.
