2. Symptom: Itching

If itching becomes unbearable, people in the grip of allergic reactions find themselves fighting a constant urge to scratch. This is one of the worst things to do when dealing with poison iv, however. When itchy skin, also called pruritus, is just a result of dryness, moisturizing the area or taking cool baths can offer relief. Similar measures can temporarily soothe poison ivy rashes.
