Urushiol induced contact dermatitis solution
1. A solution for urushiol induced contact dermatitis comprising a supporting agent and at least one ethoxylate in combination.
A solution for urushiol induced contact dermatitis is provided for in a topical solution. According to the invention, a method is provided for applying a composition of substances to the affected area, working the composition into the affected area, and removing the composition from the affected area. The composition comprises at least one ethoxylate in combination with a supporting agent. It is believed that this combination binds to the available urushiol receptors rendering it inactive. The affinity of the receptors for the ethoxylates also appears to cause a release of the urushiol from its epidermal bonds for bonding to the composition. An inert scrubbing agent, such as polyethylene beads, can also be included to assist in the release of the urushiol. Acetylated lanolin alcohol, EDTA, a foam stabilizer, and water can also be added to the composition without effecting performance.
