Dr. Paul Auerbach wrote a review of the product Zanfel in 2008. In the comment section White Coat left this helpful suggestion
One of the other things that helps to some degree is "Ivy Block" - it allegedly keeps the urushiol from binding to the skin. http://www.ivyblock.com/ivyblock.phpAlso, check out the post he did “Poison Ivy – Son of an Itch”
Also, TechNu is reported to work as well as Zanfel, but is significantly less expensive. http://www.teclabsinc.com/products.cfm?id=1F5604C8-9D05-4675-56129F6D83DF2417§ion=1
