I am 15 weeks pregnant. Two and a half weeks ago I contracted poison ivy. I have never had it before and so made every blunder possible when clearing out the garden in our newly purchased first home. I ended up having the poison ivy on every part of my body, from chin to feet. Because of the pregnancy, I was told that the only "safe" treatment I could use, was calamine lotion. I spent two weeks in absolute agony. There were moments, especially at night, when the bed rubbed against my already raw, pus filled skin, that I actually thought about ending the pregnancy. I'm ashamed of that, but the pain and itching was so terrible, and the idea of six or more weeks like this, with no real treatment, was just unbearable. Everyday the rashes were larger and itchier! Because of this, I went on the web to research poison ivy. I just knew there had to be something I could do. Then I found Zanfel. I read testimonials in favor of your product on different sites who were unconnected to your laboratory. Then I went to your web site. I ordered your product, and as soon as it arrived I jumped in the shower and began furiously scouring my body, stem to stern. For the first time in two and a half weeks, my life was bearable again. The itching stopped immediately in most places, and the blisters dried up. A few of the more severe spots needed "retreatment" but once again, the itching stopped immediately. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! From one very happy expecting mommy.
