    Oh, I'm sure it works. It's the how it works that's the problem.
    I don't think there was any negative effects. Although I'm still trying to figure out why I wear this bike helmet and drool bib all the time and I won't mention the short bus I take to work every day.😜

    Make sure you put the cigarette out first though!

    So after a day of clearing I took a bottle of clorox bleach, put it on a white wash cloth and wiped down my arms and legs and let the bleach do its thing while I sat down and drank 2 or 3 beers before rinsing it off (The old 2-3 Beer Time Limit! )

    Mrs S had one area of her arm near her wrist that she thought had been exposed to poison ivy so I poured a bit of clorox on a white cloth and wiped down her arm. She was skeptical and kept bitching and moaning that it wouldn't work so I said "Woman, quit your bitching and moaning, set the damn clorox rag on your arm, drink a couple of beers and we'll all be happy!"

    The next day poor Mrs Slippy had a freakin' white patch of skin on her normally beautiful tanned skin that would make Michael Jackson proud! If you happen to meet Mrs S, take a look at her left wrist and notice the white patch that wraps damn near around her wrist!
    Fels Naptha soap is what I have always used for poison ivy or poison oak. (But it doesn't work worth a damn for chiggers!)

    No chiggers in Fireland. Thank God!!!

    The first (and hopefully last) time Mrs I and I experienced chiggers was when we met up with @Deebo and a couple other from here in SE Oklahoma. Mrs Inor and I must have gotten into a nest of them! Both of us were completely red and swollen from the waist down! I mean we were scratching until we bleed. Everybody told us to just paint clear fingernail polish on them. Hell, I would have gone broke buying enough clear fingernail polish to cover both of us! We had them BAD!!! The only thing that gave us ANY relief was to completely cover ourselves with Vaseline. And then, we were both too miserable to take advantage of the situation!

    My mom taught me to make a baking soda paste for bee stings. Then I was taught (by a nurse) to get a bee sting out with a credit card. Hold it vertically against the skin and swipe the affected area.

    For burns we use a some juice from an aloe plant.

    Cold damp towels help to take the heat out of a sunburn.
