I have used Technu, many times when I have come in contact with PI. It eliminates the oil immediately, allowing for quicker healing. I recommend it to all outdoor enthusiast!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bill A must have for poison oak
This is a great product if you are around poison oak. It can be used prophylacticaly prior to exposure or as a treatment after exposure. The only problem is the substance is a little thin and more like a runny lotion than a cream. There is not much odor and it goes on the skin easily. After contact it can be washed off along with the oils of the plant. After having contact with a plant it can be used like a soap to help remove the oils and reduce the inflammatory reaction. Make sure you wash all your gear and clothes with Technu as well after you have been in contact with the plant. The last time I hiked through some I forgot to wash my pack with the stuff and only sprayed it off and used Tide. The next time I wore the pack I got poison oak on my shoulders and waist again from the straps. A quick wash with Technu and the problem went away.
