TODAY, JUNE 17,1980 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH YouVe the Doctor By Joseph D. WMMrmg, M. D, POI9OW HrtT skin brown. Prevention of poteon Ivy to easier said than dam. Tin best advice, of count, ts to Avoid the dangerous plant with the tri-lobed teat. Such advio« i» easily given but often difficult to follow. One thing Is certain; You don't have to be a tanner, camper or a backwoodsman to get poison ivy. It is likely to be growing there, right in your own back year. Even If you live In a hot tenement on a dusty city •treet, you may find poison ivy not only in the city fmrta but in roadside culverts and even in the crtck* of the cement pavement. Your best bet, then Is to know what poison ivy looks like and to avoid It as far as possible. Poison ivy is but one of several annoying Rhus plants that arc scattered from coast to coast. Poison ivy, itself, grows In aD of the Canadian provinces and over the entire United States except the extreme southwest. Western poison oak is found all along the Pacific coast, from southern California to Canada. Oak leaf poison ivy, which differs slightly from common poison ivy by having a grossly serated leaf, is spread throughout the eastern United States from New Jersey into eastern Texas. The fourth member of this notorious quartet, poison sumac, grows in many areas, particularly where there is dampness, hut especially east of the Mississippi. The leaves of poison sumac are made up of seven to 13 leaflets arranged In pairs along the central mid rib with a single leaflet at the end. The others have characteristic tri-lobed leaves. No verbal description is as satisfactory as a picture of the plants or having the real culprit?! pointed out to you. A Contact Irritation Since the rash of poison ivy is a contact skin irritation, the characteristic redness, itching, and weeping blisters are usually on the exposed parts. The rash results, however, not only from direct personal contact with the oils in the leaves but also to allergic factors. There is one consoling fact. Death from poison ivy is practically unheard of, although the afflicted person can be mighty uncomfortable. Aside from prevention of the condition by complete avoidance of the leaves, there are very few additional methods that can be counted on. For example, various protective ointments and creams can be applied to the skin before exposure' but they rub off too quickly to be of real value. As one skin specialist recently put it, "The benefit to be had by applying these preparations is short-lived and probably Insignificant under the usual conditions of exposure. Their use is not recommended." Thorough washing of hands and exposed parts shortly after exposure may prevent the appearance of the rash in some people who are not too susceptible and may make the rash milder in those who are more susceptible. For extremely sensitive persons, however, scrubbing with soap and water, even a few minutes after exposure, may have little effect on the subsequent development of the rash. Still, if there has been a known exposure to the If the rash is spread over a large area, starch baths with lukewarm water for 30 to €0 minutes three times daily tf» useful. The powdered starch is not poured directly Into the tub, but a paste is first made and a cupful of the paste Is dissolved in the tepid bath water. Following the bath, the patient should pat himself dry. Calamin lotion or Quo- tane lotion may help relieve some of the pain and stinging because of their direct anesthetic action on the skin. Sedative* and Aspirla General sedatives are also of value and even aspirin may be used fairly liberally. In the more severe cases, the physician may decide to treat the patient with one of aevcrai of the cortisone-like medicines. In cases where the poison ivy blisters have become infected, antibiotics are often useful. Since poison ivy is so much more easily prevented than cured, you should be sure that you can identify the plant easily before you take your family out for a picnic, if would be a real shnme to let this man-hating plant spoil your vacation. © I960 N.

To Banish Tension, Relax in Tub Though American women are well acquainted with the bath as a means of cleanliness and a feeling of luxury, not so many of us realize that it's a first-rate way of banishing tension. Its theraputic qualities have been known in Eu,plants. washing carefully with rope since tne , ate 170(rs Since soap and water can do no lhftt dme many famous batns harm and certainly should be attempted. The use of an oxidizing agent, such as a 10 per cent solution of potassium permanganate, may also be soothing and healing in some of the more severe cases. Injection* for Prevention Prevention of poison ivy may be accomplished in some cases by the injection of suitable ivy extracts or by using an oral poison ivy preparation. The "immunity" achieved by these methods varies from person to person and may fail in cases that are most sensitive. Preventive methods, either by tablets or injections, do not produce long-lasting immunity and, for the extremely sensitive person, preparation ihould itart in February. It is Important to realize, however, that, although injections of extracts may be of some vtlue in the prevention of poison ivy, such injections are worthless in treating the disease and, Indeed, may be dangerous. Treatment will vary with the extent and severity of the rash. If only the hands and wrists are involved, for example, soaks and cold compresses may be helpful. A weak solution of potassium permanganate (1 to, 10,000) is inexpensive, soothing, and drying, but it tends to stain the and spas have been developed both here and abroad. But your own bathtub will do as well. Give yourself 20 minutes to half-an-hour in a moderately hot tub, pleasantly scented, and just feel the kinks come out.—NEA. Beauty Tips Cracked fingernail?

I got two other girls my age (12 years oldi to join. They elected me president. The purpose of the club is to be [friends and do (interesting ! things. No matter I what I want to 'do they are against it. We take a vote and I lose. If I want Aim Landers, to go bowling, they vote for a movie. When I want to go skating they vote to go dime store shopping. I'm afraid I'm going to lose my presidency if I can't think of a way to get some unity into the club in a hurry. How can I do it? MADAME PRESIDENT DEAR MADAME: A president is not supposed tb inflict his will in the members. In a democracy the majority rules—not the president. Why not take in a few additional members. They might have some brand new ideas and the club would be more fun. (It could shift the balance of power, too.) » * f * DEAR ANN: Recently I married after being a widow for 10 years. The man I married lost his mate five years ago. It was agreed when we married that I was to quit my job and do whatever I chose with the small income from my husband's estate. It was further agreed that, we'd live on his salary, and what was his was mine, also. Now that we're married he takes me to the market once a week, .pushes the cart and I walk behind him like a child. If I pick an item off the shelf he says "Put it back. We don't need it." He pays the rent and utilities. If 1 want a piece of clothing, he comes with me to pick it out and he pays for it. My pocket book is so empty I keep tissue paper in it so it. won't look so flat. Why should I have to beg for money when I was once completely independent and could be that way again if I went back to work? What do you suggest? J.W. DEAR J.W.: I suggest you sit. down with your husband and review the original agreement that you "live on his salary and what's his is yours, also." Kvery woman should have some money to spend as she wishes, as a matter of dignity. Slip's a partner in the marriage, even If she's not bringing home a pay check. If he doesn't loosen up. tell him you're going back to work and he can pay a housekeeper to rook and clean and follow him around the market when he shops DEAR ANN: Is It smart to let a husband drive the day- lady, (she's younger than I am), my cousin, my sister* and the next-door neighbor to the bus-line without me? Recently when he offered to drive my cousin I suggested IIP take the kids along for the ride. He blew up and said "For Pete's sake Helen, cut it out. I don't need a chaperone." What does this sound likr to you? WONDERING DEAR WONDERING: It sounds like your suspicions are showing. Since you object to his being alone with the cleaning lady, the cousin and the sisters, your jealousy covers a wide range. If the kids had asked to go along and he said no. it would he different. But when you suggest they accompany him it indicates you feel he needs watching. He resents this, and ho has a right to. Cut it out, Helen, or you may put ideas in his head. • * * « • Are you going steady? Making marriage plans? If so, send for Ann Landers' booklet. "Before You Marry—Is It Love or Sex?", enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a large, self-addressed, starrlped envelope. (Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of the Alton Telegraph enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope.) (© 1980. Field Enterprises, Inc.)
