To use banana as a home remedy, you need to rub a paste of mashed banana on the affected area. This remedy can provide a soothing effect and help an individual in getting quick relief from the problem of poison ivy. An individual can also rub the inside part of a banana peel on the affected area to cure the symptoms of poison ivy.
Apply cooked oatmeal, cooled of course, on the affected area. It can reduce the rashes and itching resulting from poison ivy. Another option is to take a bath with lukewarm water containing oatmeal. Now I'm wondering if adding bananas would make it work twice as good.
