Zanfel Poison Ivy Wash

Experts Rave About Zanfel

I am Dr. Eric Reinertson from Pekin, IL. I am a board certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist, and I was introduced to Zanfel by the company president in July of 1998. My wife and I had horrible contact with a mixture of poison ivy and poison oak while landscaping around our home. My wife was clearly miserable and did not sleep for days--even at the expense of using several over the counter "remedies". These products simply did not do their job, and she was prescribed high dose steroids by her Dr. The steroids did not provide her any relief either. We then were introduced to Zanfel and with the proper application, her symptoms of pain and itching were relieved within seconds and the lesions dried within 24 hours. From a personal and professional point of view, Zanfel is the only product worthy of use for Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, and Poison Sumac. The best part is that it can be used safely on anybody, including children, and even on the face! Zanfel receives my endorsment over the current available therapies, including prescription therapies.

Thank you for such a terrific product!

     When my husband and I moved to our retirement property in Missouri, we knew that there was poison ivy, but we did not know just how sensitive we were to it.
       In the late fall my husband was clearing some brush and was subsequently exposed to it even though there were no leaves still on the vine. After the first few days of Benadryl cream, hydrocortisone cream and no relief to speak of, the rash had spread from arms to legs to torso and was not getting better at all. The next step was to the doctor for systemic steroids and stronger anti-histamines.
       We did an on-line search for help and found Zanfel!! Thank goodness. We ordered and had overnight delivery made as he was now into the second full week of fighting the rash, blisters, itching and agony of not being able to sleep for the itching. He tried it as soon as it arrived and started feeling less itching, and the rash started to resolve within a couple of days. After a few days, it was gone!
        As a pharmacist, I was rather skeptical to begin with because it is hard to believe all of the claims that it made. Well, I am now a believer. Since the initial problem, my husband has been exposed more times than he would like to admit, and every time he has used Zanfel right away, and there have been NO MORE episodes of rash, blisters and itching. We have a cat that goes outside, and as cats will do, runs through the brush and weeds and the poison ivy and brings in the urushiol oil on his coat. This has been transferred to our skin also and the Zanfel has prevented any further outbreaks from this source.
       Thanks for creating and marketing such a terrific product. I pass along the information on the product to everyone that I can.

Hello, my name is Dr. Don Reneau. I have had a long time dream to live in Oregon. About 2 years ago I moved here with great expectations about the beautiful countryside and the weather. Shortly after moving here I was introduced to "Poison Oak". Now, I am not allergic to anything else, but poison oak eats me alive. I bubble up and go through weeks of agony with only the slightest exposure. I had found paradise and hell at the same time. My plans were changing. I was ready to give up my practice here, lose my earnest money on my 93 acres and move out as quickly as possible. I decided to read on the net as much as I could about Poison Oak. I came across the Zanfel home page and my life has changed back to normal. I still get the poison oak like I always did, I still welt up and wish I didn't get it, but now it is not controlling my life. I use the Zanfel and I get instant relief. Sometimes I have to use it a couple of times, but it always works. I got better results some times than others but now after reading the directions closely I always get good results. This stuff is great. I bought about 15 tubes and have given or sold them to everyone I find that has poison oak. Their results have been the same and now they think that I can walk on water!! I feel that I can recommend Zanfel, without reservation to everyone who suffers from poison oak or poison ivy. Please feel free to call me if you want to.

       Worth flying for! In all my 35 years of retail experience I've never had a product that customers would actually fly an airplane to me in order to get. I received a long distance call this week from a guy who had poison ivy and had heard about Zanfel from someone else. No Pharmacy in his town carried Zanfel. Through the Zanfel web site, he discovered that I stocked it. He called me and said he would fly in to pick it up, if we would meet him at the local airport. Upon delivering the Zanfel to the airport, my clerk said he had a terrible case of poison ivy all over his body. Two days later he called again, amazed at the results and said that he wanted to fly down again that afternoon to pick up more Zanfel. Now that is the kind of demand I like to see in my stores.

My experience with Zanfel was a very good one. I was 6 months pregnant and got poison ivy and I was covered with it. My eyes were swollen shut from it being on my face. Being a doctor of chiropractic and being pregnant, I wanted something that was natural. I did not and could not use any kind of steroids and was very limited in what I could use. Zanfel gave me immediate relief from itching and I knew it was safe for me and my baby.

     Sorry it took so long to write, I've been very busy with a new office! I ordered the zanfel for my son after trying Benadryl and Cortisone unsuccessfully to clear up his poison ivy. It immediately cleared up the itching, swelling and rash on his face. Lucky for us that we had the Zanfel later, because he had spread the poison ivy to his legs. We used the Zanfel on his legs and it cleared up immediately. This is truly a wonderful product.

What a wonderful product!!! I have long been troubled by terrible allergy to poison ivy, a definite problem since I am an avid gardener. Over the years, I have used the usual topical applications (Calamine lotion, hydrocortisone cream) with no relief from the itching. As a registered nurse, I have been aware of the traditional protocols for therapy, but even with prednisone injectable and tablet form, antihistamines, and prophylactic antibiotics to prevent the severe lesions from becoming infected, the relief from the itching did not happen for several days. This last episode of poison ivy covered over 50% of my body, including my face, trunk, arms and upper legs. A nurse friend of mine and a physician at the hospital where I work, recommended I try ZANFEL. With their help I contacted the 800 number and was able to get the product the same day. I followed the directions and applied it to the affected areas and had INSTANT relief from the itching. I had a great night's sleep. I repeated the application the following day, not because the areas were itching, but because it seemed to be reducing the skin lesions significantly. Thank you for a product that has made such a change in my life.

       Hello! I am allergic to poison oak to such a degree that I don't have to touch it to react to it. I break out in a blistery rash and, when the blisters break, the rash weeps for seven to ten days. Usually, I just use calamine and hydrocortisone creams to keep the itch down and dry up the ooze. I've never gone to the doctor with poison oak because it's never been in my eyes or my blood system. I do, however, SUFFER because when the blisters break, the rash spreads to wherever the fluid touches. I've had outbreaks that last, in one place or another, for three months. Until now, I would just endure the itching and thank God I didn't have any worse problems than poison oak allergy.
       My boyfriend recently removed brush and brambles from beneath some trees in the back of my yard. Unbeknownst to me, there was poison oak in the brush. Well, of course the blisters came up and then started to weep. I had a small patch on my right arm and on both lower legs. After the patch on my arm had been weeping for four days, my boyfriend said he was going to find me something to get rid of it. He got on the net and found Zanfel. Now, I'm a nurse and have a tendency to be skeptical of lots of things that don't have lots and lots of proof behind them, so I was willing to try it, but wasn't very optimistic.
        I received the Zanfel the day after I ordered it. I got in the shower and started scrubbing. At this point, the rash on my arm was still weeping, but the blisters on my legs hadn't broken yet. The instructions say to scrub and re-scrub until there is no more itching. I scrubbed my arm twice, my right leg twice and my left leg four times. When I got out of the shower, I didn't itch anywhere. Also, I had been putting dressings on my arm and having to change them every two hours because of the amount of drainage. MY ARM WAS DRY. It no longer needed dressings and immediately (within two hours) started to scab up and heal. The blisters on my legs never did weep and the rash cleared up almost completely within two days.
      I am a convert. I've been telling people at work about Zanfel and will be delivering a jar of it to the Emergency Room soon!

      As a homeowner in the country, a dog owner and a veterinarian, I have experienced poison ivy induced rashes every year for the last 17 years. I would pick it up from my patients, and my own pets as well as encounters on my own while landscaping our 4+ acre yard. I have used most every over the counter product there is as well as oral steroids to help alleviate the intense itch. Nothing seemed to work. Washing thoroughly post exposure certainly helped minimize lesions but never seemed to eliminate them. I learned of Zanfel on the internet and decided to give it a try .The product arrived a day earlier than expected and I immediately followed the instructions to treat a particularly nasty poison ivy rash on my forearm. After the treatment my arm was itch free! The next day the swelling, redness and vesicles were reduced by at least 50 %. The second day after that one treatment, the lesions continued to be itch free and were a fourth of what they were pre treatment. The rash is remaining itch free and decreasing each day. I am very pleased with the performance of Zanfel over anything I have tried in the past.

To a great Illinois company:

     Thanks, Zanfel, for coming to my rescue. There I was with poison ivy everywhere, especially on my face. The itching was driving me crazy and we had a family wedding just two weeks away! I went right to the Internet and searched under "poison ivy CURE." I didn't want to settle for anything less than a cure, and I didn't have to. Your product arrived at our house twenty-six hours after I placed the order. Knowing how anxious I was to start the treatment, my husband made a special trip to the school where I teach to deliver the Zanfel.
      And as soon as I finished my first treatment, there was blessed relief. The itching was gone, and the healing began. Now, three days later, the lesions have dried up, the rash is receding, and I'll look fine for that wedding. This is unbelievable because it usually takes three weeks or more of oozing and itching and medication to get me on the road to recovery.
     Poison ivy is frequently a part of our family's life. Roger and I do prairie and woodland restoration work, and even the best precautions fail sometimes. The two of us also sponsor the Nature Garden Club where I teach, and our school property has many areas where poison ivy thrives.
      I can't wait to pass along the good news of your product to our outdoorsy friends, and to our students and their families. They might be as skeptical as I was upon hearing that poison ivy relief can occur so quickly. But once I let them use some of my Zanfel, I'm convinced they will be logging on and ordering their own supply.

    Thanks for the Zanfel. I am already talking it up. I have discussed it with many of my friends all over the country. I have a friend in Georgia that is already very interested! So here is my unsolicited endorsement, for you to use however you may choose:

      I am excited about Zanfel, on a couple of levels - as a professional RN, I am thrilled to finally have a product that CURES poison ivy, oak, and sumac - not some messy cream that I just slather on and hope it helps the symptoms. As a mother, I am excited because I know my active, outdoors-loving kids won't have to suffer anymore when they wander into the poison ivy patch. My 13yr old got poison ivy on his wrist from a watch that had the oil on it from a previous trip into the ivy - after one Zanfel application, the affected area was COMPLETELY healed! Zanfel is fast and effective - it is truly the CURE to these poisonous plants!

Dear Zanfel Laboratories:

       I am writing to thank you for the much appreciated innovation. I have suffered a variety of exposures to poison ivy, ranging from small, isolated exposures to a systemic infection. Being a research chemist, I have tried most commercially available, over-the-counter remedies and even some of my own concoctions. Nothing has worked. Such treatments result in only temporary relief of the itching and weeping of the rash, which for me, persists from one week to a month.

      While suffering from my latest bout with poison ivy, I turned to the internet in search of a better treatment or cure. When I came across Zanfel I was very skeptical of the lab's claims, so I contacted the author of a testimonial who had praised Zanfel's effectiveness as well as the laboratory's president to confirm their claims. The cost of Zanfel is significant, and I wanted to be sure that I would be getting my money's worth. I was convinced enough to give it a try.

       Five days had passed since my exposure to the poison ivy before I received the Zanfel ointment. I had several isolated rashes that had developed blisters and weeping sores to which I applied the ointment as instructed. I purposely left one area untreated and applied my favorite over-the-counter remedy for comparison. Within minutes of applying Zanfel the itching was gone, and after an hour the redness and weeping of the sores had been significantly reduced. By comparison, there was no improvement in the area treated with the over-the-counter remedy. After only one day, the redness of the Zanfel-treated rash was barely noticeable and the open sores had scabbed over. The rash treated with the over-the-counter remedy showed little improvement, and I couldn't take it any longer. I broke out my Zanfel, and the itching and weeping were gone the next day.

       Zanfel works, period. It is the only treatment for me that has delivered on every one of its claims.

Zanfel staff,

      I just wanted to write and thank you for getting the order here promptly. My wife has had systemic poison ivy for over 2 weeks. After a round of prednisone and a cortisone shot, I felt that there had to be another course of action. I jumped on the web on Saturday 7-8-2000 at 5:30 AM and placed my order. To my surprise, I received the order at 8:30 AM Sunday morning 7-9-2000 via USPS. My wife tore into the package and immediately started scrubbing with Zanfel. She said it relieved the itching immediately. She applied the Zanfel again about 3 hours later and is still sleeping. Thank you for the quick service! My wife can finally rest without waking every 5 minutes to scratch. I recommend your product without hesitation.

Thanks again,
