, APRIL 7,1981 ALTON 1VBMNG TELffGRAPM You're the Doctor well to bring his problem to his physician rather than to waste time and money trying one weltadviTtlRfd preparation after the other. At least, don't scratch. 0 1981, N. Y. Herald-Tribune. Inc. Junior By Joupph D. Wameniifg, M.O, TUB MBABrttra OF tTCfttfra itching, therefore, wouM do Everyone knows what Itching fc, but even the most skillful skin specialists an often at a toss to ,dnd«ntaM why U It. Some scientists say thai Itch- Ing Is related to pain. Others believe it Is caused by enzymatic breakdown of certain «kln chemicals. The "Itch" nerves line the a outermost layer of the skin dpOft&ffteft tO and, if this layer Is scraped * off, the Itoh also disappears. dfOWH That's one reason why scratch* ing gives relief. At its worst, Itching may be more difficult to endure than pain. At its mildest, it may hardly be noticeable. Broadly speaking, itching tan be classified Into two types: (1) localized and (2) generalized. The classic example of a localized itch is the Ming of an insect. When the bug bites, It injects a venom into the skin which Juniors of Alton-Wood River Sportsmen's Club completed plans for their coronation dance to be held April 20 from 8 until 11 o'clock In the Sportsmen's Club. A queen will be chosen, and those attending will cast their ballot by ticket. Candidates for the honor are the Misses Beverly Pershall, Jo Ann Dlx- on, Barbara Conrad, Betty Ford, Carolyn Wood, Connie may cause both itching and* Beckman, and Eleanor Won!, pain initially, but the Itch persists. Contact poisons, too, may cause itching and the usual example here is poison Ivy. Allergic Reaction In other cases, localized Itching may be due to an allergic reaction of the skin. This allergy may be caused by direct contact with the offending substance. An example is the itch (and rash) that is often seen around the neck of some persons In winter due to contact with fur pieces, woolen scarves or clothing. Some people are allergic to wool and may itch wherever wool contacts the skin. In other instances, the skin may react with an itchy rash (hives or eczema) to food allergens, such as fish or eggs. Even medicines may cause itching. Some infants develop eczema because they are so allergic that they cannot tolerate cow's milk formula and have to use a soybean "milk" substitute for their'nutrition. Many chemicals, too, are irritants to the skin and contact with them Is probably the most common cause of localized itching in the industrial worker. Other local causes of itching include mechanical irritants, such as scratching, rubbing, and wind burn; irritants due to temperature, such as cold and heat, and all sorts of chemical irritants. Confined to Areas In some cases, localized itching is confined only to certain areas of the body, particularly the hairy parts. Itching in the arm pits and in the groin may be due to the fact that moisture and perspiration in those areas soften and decompose the skin and allow microbes of one sort or another to invade the skin and cause irritation. Itching confined to the private parts may be caused by annoying discharges. Each case, of course, represents a special problem of its own and every patient must be treated individually. Anti- itch ointments and salves that may help some people can actually cause worse itching in others. . Generalized itching is ofien related to some general disease of the body. One striking example, of course, is diabetes. Doctors still do not know why diabetes may cause itching. It does not do so in every person, and it apparently is not related to the severity of the condition It is possible that the itching of diabetes is due to increased sugar content of the skin which is a reflection of the increased blood sugar, but this point is difficult to prove. Itching of the skin due to diabetes is almost always relieved when the diabetes is controlled with insulin or with the newer anti-diabetes tablets. In Jaundice Cases Some cases of jaundice produce severe and terrible generalized itching, but this is true only in those cases where the jaundice is caused by obstruction to the flow of bile. Medical'scientists now believe that the itch is not due to the retention of the yellow and green bile pigment, but to bile salts. At any rate, this type of itching is best controlled when the obstruction to the passage of bile is relieved and the bile flows normally again from the liver into the intestine. Other cases of itching may be related to still more serious conditions. Hodgking' disease, which is basically a glandular disorder of the body, may cause some degree of itching and, often, this itching is accentuated when the patient takes a warm tub bath. Still other cases may be related to leukemia and other serious blood disorders. On the other hand, some of the most severe cases may be due to nerves—and only nerves. Simple sedatives, tranquilizers, or even aspirin may prove most helpful. Most cases of itching are due to simple causes and are simply treated. There are a few. however, whic,b will tax the ingenuity ami resourcelui- ness of the most highly trained specialist. The person who is Miss Hazel Sheppard is retiring queen. The dance will be open to the public and tickets may be purchased at the door. Mike Rice and his Rice Checks will provide music for dancing.
