What is the best thing to put on poison sumac?

In 2008, I got poison sumac for the first time. Although it doesn't spread, it was very painful and felt like an open wound. I had it all summer long until I was prescribed Prednisone for a bout of poison ivy I also had. The Prednisone took it away but I would like to know about a natural remedy. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    It wasn't really a rash that it caused. It resembled more of a burn and felt like one. Solid red welt. Nothing I put on it took it or the pain away.

    Is Zanfel an over the counter cream or pill?
