Stop Itch and Prevent Infection
Columbia Antiseptic Powder helps stop the itch resulting from poison ivy, poison sumac, and poison oak; thus eliminating the need to scratch the affected area. This helps contain the rash and reduce spreading. By controlling the itch, it also helps prevent infection that are often caused by scratching. This reduces scaring and speeds healing.
Of course, avoiding poisonous plants and trees is best. However, as soon as you realize you’ve come in contact with poison ivy, oak or sumac, you need to wash off the sap thoroughly. Apply Columbia Antiseptic Powder to the affected area. Decontaminate or discard clothing, work gloves and anything that came in contact with the sap.
