Erath, LA (PressExposure) March 22, 2009 -- The ways to get Poison Ivy, Oak or Sumac rashes are numerous. Many do not realize direct skin-to-plant contact is not the only way to become a victim of these oozing and itching rashes. If one s clothing brushes against the plant or something that has been in contact with the plant, the Urushiol Oil -- the very plant secretion causing the rash -- has been known to stay around and active for days.
Another common way to contract Poison Ivy rashes are through our pets. Pet owners are not often aware of the fact they could get Poison Ivy, Oak or Sumac if their beloved Fluffy or Fido has been in contact with the dangerous plant. You may never even know your cat or dog has come into contact with Poison Ivy because their skin does not react to Poison Ivy like human skin does. Unfortunately, the only solution would be to give your dog or cat a bath each time they come in and out the house an unlikely solution to say the least.
Before Q-Based Healthcare s break-through Poison Ivy, Oak and Sumac Healing Gel the end result was usually a very costly visit to the doctor s office for a painful and uncomfortable cortisone shot or smelly and sticky cortisone lotion. Say goodbye to those days because with this gel the itching, burning and oozing stops within days, not weeks.
The development of this product is something we really take pride in, stated Sandra Booher, Vice-President of Q-Based Healthcare or http://www.qbased.com. I personally knew there was a need for product just like this because I, myself, have suffered with Poison Ivy rashes. And I know the frustration that comes along with Poison Ivy when you just can t find anything that will make it go away.
When the Poison Ivy, Oak and Sumac Healing Gel first hit the market in 2005 it came in two sizes 2oz and 4oz. The demand is now so high for the revolutionary gel; it now comes in half gallon and gallon sizes.
Our Healing Gel flies out the door, and that s not surprising. It works, said Q-Based owner, Joseph Marquardt. Our customers stock up on our gel every spring gearing up for the summer. It s great for Poison Ivy, Oak or Sumac as well as bug bites. We get remarkable feedback.
Q-Based customers rave about the gel and new testimonies come in every day according to Marquardt.
I was amazed at how quickly I felt relief from the itching and burning, stated one customer in a thankful e-mail to Q-Based after using the gel for three days. The rash is barely even visible now.
