I am also real sensative to the stuff. The company I work for, provides both Tecnu pre exposure preventer and the soap that stops the spread. I tried the pre exposure cream and didn't get any PO on me. I stopped using it after a while. I don't know if I was just lucky or didn't get touched by any leaves. I carry a small plastic bottle of the soap, just in case. I usually get a little on me and use the soap after I get home, when it starts itching. It seems to keep it from spreading. I've used it in the trail also and it seems to minimize the spread.LBmtb said:I also carry some of those alcohol wipes in case I run into some poison oak. Poison oak seems to love me.
Has anyone ever tried that cream that you put on beforehand which is spossed to stop the poison oak in case you touch it?
I also just recently bought a little mini spray can of instant skin. I haven't had a chance to use it.Ratt said:Just basic "stop the bleeding" stuff. 3 large gauze, 2 extra large bandage, spore tape, 6 regular bandages, and neosporen.
I carry one of those REi kits. Disinfectants, gause, bandaids, suture kit (not that I have the know-how to use it) and the brave soldier antisthetic abrasion juice stuff. I've used that on several occasions. Great stuff.Tacoma4.0 said:

I've used most of the Brave Soldier stuff. I lost more skin than usual year.sunnyracegirl said:What have you used from your first aid kit, and what have you wished you had but didn't?
Sam Splint and Brave Soldier Crash Pack is always in my camelback. The Sam Splint is a rolled wireframe splint that when unrolled and shaped into a trough, will serve as a splint for broken bones. I've had to replace my Crash Pack 3 times from using everything up. It seems I always come across someone that got in over their head.damion said:BS (Heh) makes a small first aid kit called the Crash Pack. It has all of the basics for treating minor cycling injuries. It is packed flat, in a waterproof sealed bag.
