Summer is almost over and before the summer ends don't forget a family camp. The downside of your family's annual camping trip? The oozing, itchy poison ivy rash you developed when you returned home. For quick relief, dampen a black tea bag and apply to the itchy area for 10 minutes. If the rash has spread, simply steep three or four tea bags in your bath water. Thanks to the black tea's tannins, proteins in the skin will shrink, diminishing tenderness, swelling and itchiness. Give this a try if you have poison ivy.
