For many years I have treated the simple cases of ivy poisoning with the use of caustic potash. I put a small bit in six or eight ounces of water--just enough to give the water a slight soapy feel to the fingers. This I apply freely to the entire surface involved. It is simple and very effectual. In fact it has never failed me once in all the years of my practice.
