PCDIATRIC PoiNT RS

After dealing with the timely subject
of allergies the past two weeks, I
thought it would be appropriate to
briefly discuss a skin rash related to
allergies called eczema. My daughter
has this condition so I deal with it at
home as well as in my Pediatric clinic.
Dry skin eczema is a scaly, bumpy,'
sometimes red, sometimes flesh-colored
rash that tends to come and go. It
may occur anywhere on he body, but
seems to occur most often around the
elbows and knees. Since it occasionally
appears in red round circles, it is
often mistaken for ringworm. While it
is itchy like ringworm, remember that
ringworm is caused by a fungus, while
eczema is not.
There are certain things that cause
eczema to flare up. In the wintertime,
with dry heat inside and low humidity
outside, our skin tens to dry out some.
This increased 'dryness can worsen
eczema. Harsh soaps and detergents,
as well as wool fabric, can cause this
rash to flare up. And remember, since
eczema is related to allergies, certain
ingested or inhaled allergens can set
this rash off.
How do you control eczema? Good
question! Use preventive measures to
help keep the rash from flaring up. Use
mild soaps such as Dove or Aveeno,
and avoid wool fabricson the skin. Use
a humidifier in the house in the wintertime
to add moisture inside. Hypoallergenic
moisturizers like Eucerin or
Kerilotion help replace lost m mois
ture in the skin. When there is a flare
up, you can use oral or topical antihistamines
such as Benadryl to take away
some of the itching an inflammation.
T opical hydrocortisone (Cortaid) does
a good job also, but avoid using it for
long periods of time on the face. Ultraviolet
rays, like sunlight, help improve
eczema. Only occasionally does eczema
require special treatment. In bad
cases, your doctor my prescribe strong
antihistamines or steroids to combat
the problem.
Let'send onagoodnote. When kids
develops eczema early in childhood,
like my daughter, there is a good chance
they will outgrow the disorder as they
get older. So do the simple things to
keep the skin moisturized and use the
easy remedies to treat the flare ups.
Thanks for tuning fa. Send your
questions in and we'll talk again nexi
week!
Princess Di Charities have
Life After Death
The causes Princess Diana were most strongly identified with AIDS,
hospices, land mines ? demanded more than a reflexive
commitment. There is no question that her luminous presence
made a difference in all the worlds she touched, which is why
reaction to her sudden death was suffused with an almost
' numbed shock. Diana Princess of Wales, often advocated
personal action to touch those around us. Doing so is no longer
in her power: but to those who would mourn her, that power
remains.
British pop legend Elton John has set the tone by releasing his
"Candle in the Wind " single dedicated to the princess. All the
proceeds will benefit the Princess Diana Memorial Fund.
Several other Princess Diana commemorative pieces arc being
offered with all or part of their proceeds going to her memorial
fund as well. The Danbury Mint is offering a four plate limited
edition collection baring her image and wiil make a $100,000
donation to Diana's favorite charities. The Heartland Collection
introduces the Diana Limited Edition collectors coin and will
make a donation to her fund with every purchase. By
< purchasing any of these remembrances we have the opportunity
to commemorate her life for ourselves while carrying on her
spirit by helping those in need.

Randy Dial?Reminiscing
It was a difficult kind of Thanksgiving
for friends and family ofour former
neighbor Randy Dial. On that day we
celebrated his life. Which ended with a
cardiac arrest at only 41. A shock to all
of us.
When I got home from the funeral
thetiight before, I thought about something
interesting.
I hand placed my hands on Randy's
blue shirt, just as I did in 1980 on
Donny's blue shirt. Both caskets were
next to the same wall, in the same very
room at the same funeral home.
Perhaps, without realizing it, I was
re-living that earlier experience
After my own two boys were gone,
Randy was one of the young men I
came to care about almost like a son.
Byron Locklear (whose name uses the
same letters as our little By-ron, only in
a different order) was another.
And now Donny, Gordon, Bryon,
and Randy are all gone! Leaving the
rest of us behind long before any of us
had anticipated.
With the hole they have eft in the
lives of loved ones, I'm thankful that
our family still has our just-turnedtwo-year-old
Byron.
This Time
I did some crying while my hands
wererestingon Randy's shirt that night,
but not the torrent of tears that fell in
1980. This time the torrent of tears
came from those even closer to Randy
than I was.
How thankful I am that each one of
us has available to us a powerful, loving
God,, who can bring us through the
storms of life and (sooner or later) give
us that "peace that passeth understanding."
Every time 1 to go a "sitting up" in
that room at the funeral home I can sec
our family's three caskets on that July
night 17 years ago.
This time as I left the funeral home,
I realized one reason that the memory
of going from Gordon to Leon, to
Donny does not leave me feeling sad.
That night I got more heart felt hugs
than I had ever dreamed of getting in
my entire life. Thatnight that room was
filled with love!
Families Who Are Grieving
Let's keep this family-and all the
many others who have l&st a loved one
this year?in our prayers. Along with
God's Love and nearly two years of
counseling, it is the constant support
from this community (and from family
and friends out west) that has kept me
going since our loss.
Thank you ALL from the bottom of
my heart!

John, in his teller to the brethren ,
reminds ihcm and us to take note In
other words stop, look and sec how
much God loves us When w e arc born
into the family of God we become sons
or God The w orlds not know this love
and cannot understand because thc\
do not know God
We arc reminded that wc arc the
sons or God and that makes us like
Jesus Wc don't know yet what wcwilJ

Everyday that vvclivc. wcarc striving
to be more like Jesus. People w hen
they arc born again do not become

walk. They grow and learn to be more
like Jesus God's people do not knoyv

assurance that when yyc sec Jesus wc

arc not perfect yet. but yyhen yvc see
Jesus yyc yyill be perfect as He is'
because this mortality shall put on
immortality.
II. Born to Be Different
(I John 3:4-5, 9-10)
When wc arc born into the family
of God wc become different. When a
sinner becomes a believer in Christ
his nature is changed He becomes a
ncvvcrcaturc in Christ The born again
believer strives and desires not to sin
because sin is breaking the law of
God If wc sin wc arc reminded by the
Holy Spirit that vvchavc sinned against
God The inner man has no desire to
sin because Christ took away our sins
on the cross or Calvary . God's son
Jesus was the sinless Christ who look
the sins of the yyholc yyorld upon
Himself that yvc might escape the
penalty of sin.
God's seed is in his children and
they cannot sin. That is not to say that
any Christian is without sin When
yc arc saved, the Spirit of God takes
lh> abode in our heart and gives us a
?:sirc to please God The inner man
where God abides docs not sin because
of God's righteousness but the
flesh that yvc live in is not saved so it
has a desire to sin. The nature of the
. flesh is cncmitv to God and wants
those things that please it.
The Holy Spirit that dwells in as
brings for a yvalk that is upright and
pleasing to the Father There is evidence
in a Christian's yvalk that tell
the world that there is a changed life
Anyone who practices sin and docs
not walk upright before the Father is
not of God Another thing that separates
the child of God from the unbeliever
is that the lost man docs not
loyc his brother. When God saves us
he fills us with Godly loy c. so that yyc
yyill loyc everybody.
III. Born to Love
( / John 3 11-IS)
Jesus did not bring any new commandment
when lie came, but he told
us that wc were to love one another

It is our responsibility as children of
God to let our actions and not our
words only be an example of the love
of God that abides within us.

Mother Teresa:
Saint of the
Gutter
Hailed as a living saint, Mother Teresa
dedicated her life to caring for the
dying, the outcast and the abandoned.
When she recently passed away - just
days after her eighty-seventh birthday the
world lost one of the most revered
and admired figures of the Twentieth
Century, a charismatic leader respected
by people of all religions and nationalities.
From her earliest childhood dreams of
helping the poor to her tireless work as
the leader of the Mission of Charity,
Mother Teresa's life was dedicated solely
to helping those in need. With a steely
resolve, and the backing of religious,
international and political leaders, she
eventually created the Missionary
Sisters of Charity, an order of over 4,500
sari-clad sisters, who extend themselves
to everyone from huddled, starving
masses around the world to the victims
of AIDS. And from her charitable work
came inescapable fame, along with the
1979 Nobel Peace Prize, the
Congressional Gold Medal and the
Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian
award, among others.
Her inspirational story took her from the
convent years in Calcutta to her meetings
with presidents, prime ministers
and royalty. To make a donation or offer

NET NEWS
It's a Bull Market in Cyberspace
The Internet is placing sophisticated research, newswires and trading
tools into the hands of investors. Online investors now share the same
cutting edge information that they once had to seek from investment
brokers. Managing stock portfolios and trading on personal home
computers arc becoming commonplace.
. On Prodigy Internet, investors access company news and stock quotes
about the companies they are interested in. A personal stock portfolio
keeps all investments in a charf that shows the highs'and lows for the
stock'and recent stock purchases. Finally, investors sell and buy stock
and securities online with links to traders like PC Finantial Network and
Accutrade. Because the fees of an Internet transaction arc a fraction of
what they would be with a broker transaction, many investors arc
managing their own portfolios online.
In addition to saving broker foes, many people enjoy doing their own
research before investing their money. By charting a company's growth
through reports like the one-year EPS and revenue growth, shares held by
institutions and insiders, and shares sold short, investors gain confidence
in their own abilities to predict the market,
"Investors on the Internet are demanding more and more information,"
said Scth Radwcll, Prodigy's Vice President of Electronic Commerce.
"They're finding that the 'do-it-yourself approach is much easier than it
Seems."
