    Itches horribly, but hurts to scratch.

    I went and looked at the Technu stuff in the stores. It IS expensive.

    Yes, that is the down side. On the upside, it helps my wife when she gets PI, so it is worth the cost in my opinion.

    I 2nd that!!! Some folks are more allergic to it than others and if you are one that really reacts to it then the cost is nothing to you feel better

    Amazon has Technu and ivyblock. They also have Technu in wipes (50 packs per box) These would be nice to throw in your pack.

    Zanfel is supposed to be good. Expensive though (about $45), even in generic (about $30)at Walgreens.

    Buy the Technu in bulk for better prices

    I don't mess around. I get 2-3 32 oz bottles every other year.

    Again just body not clothes.

    But I wash from head to toe after yard work in our parts.

    we just repackage ours in a smaller bottle (shampoo/conditioner bottles from hotels)
