If you want another testimonial about your product just let me know.
I was clearing a area of brush and vines which I knew to be poison ivy. I
was careful to wear gloves, long sleeves, etc. However, at some point I had
contact in two areas. One small area on my right forearm and another on my
inner left thigh. I did not notice any itching or reaction for probably two
days at which point the areas became raised, red and slightly itchy. I used
an OTC 1% cream which did help slightly, for two more days I used the cream
several times a day. I also started taking Benadryl capsules. On the fifth
day I broke out in rashes on more than 30% of my body. Needless to say I was
in agony!! I paged my dermatologist on Saturday morning, amazingly, she did
respond and called in a prescription for a topical steroid gel. I set up an
appointment for Monday morning. I ran to the drugstore to get the medicine,
it was a fairly large tube of gel. After multiple applications that day the
reddening, itching and swelling still persisted. Needless to say I could not
sleep and resorted to taking several prescription tranquilizers and pain
killers ( I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS AS A SOLUTION, PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ANY
MEDICATION WITHOUT THE ADVISE OF A PHYSICIAN) to get some sleep. At 4 am I
was contemplating the emergency room of the local hospital. By the next
morning I contacted a friend who is a Veterinarian, he researched the
subject of poison ivy and has medical knowledge. As confirmed by my
Dermatologist it had spread systemically. He had found your website and I
was able to locate a local supplier, although not all suppliers listed in my
local area actually had any in stock. The one, 1oz tube was all I could
get. THANK GOODNESS!!, I immediately went home, read the instructions and
fact sheet. Little did I know, I was a minute away from relief of the
itching. Let me tell you, this product delivers what it claims. After the
first application, the itching was gone. I was able to sleep for several
hours, due to the fact I had been up most of the night before. The swelling
and redness subsided dramatically within two hours. I did have to retreat
areas on occasion as they flared up, but again, instant relief. I saw my
dermatologist this morning and brought her the box and literature, of course
she immediately dismissed this as mere coincident. I urged her to read the
fact sheet carefully, after she thought it is very interesting that the
product claims to "unbind" the Urushiol from the skin and contains no
anti-itch component. I told her to research it further, I am proof that it
does work, it stops the itch. I was prescribed an oral steroid by the doctor
and I will continue to use Zanfel as directed and as needed. Thank you!!!
If you need a local sales representative, let me know. I certainly could
sell a product I believe in.

Sincerely,
Paul Hegner
