Jewelweed, along with plantain (the north american weed, that is), is one of a few highly regarded folk remedies for poison ivy, both preventatively and symptomatically. I have no experience with jewelweed myself, but thought i'd toss a few photos up for identification.

sadistic PI product testing


This is useful to see the progression of a bad poison ivy reaction. unscientific synopsis:
1. you can not 'cure' poison ivy, only make it itch less, despite claims.
2. hydrocortisone, calamine, and witch hazel are still cheap and still work. a little.
3. 'zanfel' isn't worth forty bucks.
