Completely Washes Away Poison Ivy, Oak & Sumac (Urushiol) From the Skin In. 30 Seconds Zanfel is a safe and effective wash for urushiol-induced contact dermatitis. Urushiol is the toxin known to cause the itching and rash associated with poison ivy, oak, sumac, poisonwood, and related plants. Zanfel works by surrounding urushiol and bonding with it, thereby enabling it to be rinsed away. Unlike some products that require use within 10-20 minutes of contact or that require continued use until the rash is gone (which can take up to 5 weeks), Zanfel offers relief at any stage of the reaction and often with only one wash. Individuals with particularly severe reactions may require additional washes. Most individuals experience relief from the itching within 30 seconds of application. The rash will begin to subside within hours if the reaction is mild to moderate. Safe to use during pregnancy. Safe for children. Safe for the face and genitals. There are no known side effects.

Zanfel is easy to use: (The following directions are for an area the size of an adult hand. ) For best results, use Zanfel in a shower or sink where it is easy to thoroughly rinse off the product. Wet the affected area. Squeeze 1 and 1/2 inches (no less; see ruler on package back) of Zanfel onto one palm, wet both hands, and rub the product into a paste. (This will properly prepare the formula prior to washing the affected area. ) Do not bypass or modify this step. Rub both hands on the affected area, working Zanfel into the skin until there is no sign of itching. (15 seconds is typical for mild to moderate reactions, but you may wash up to 3 minutes for severe reactions. ) Rinse the area thoroughly. If the itch returns (which could be several hours later), rewash following steps 1 through 5 and read the Q & A insert found in the package. This tube contains enough Zanfel to wash approximately 15 patches the size of an adult hand. Note: Severe reactions (that typically look like thick leathery burns) will probably require additional washings. One theory suggests that as the deeper toxins in a severe reaction begin to surface, the itch may return, often on the same spots. Wash again when itching returns. Severe reactions on forearms may require a double washing. Because only one palm can be used at a time, only half of the necessary amount has been applied. Rewash these areas as is necessary. If symptoms persist, reread the Q & A insert and see a physician.
