The Walk in the Woods workshop opened up a world of coloring and surface design that has endless possibilities. Making bundles of fabric and leaves is completely addictive. I hope when winter sets in, I can withdraw from making leaf bundles for a while.
In addition to her informative, well organized website, and her beautiful and exhaustive book Eco-Colour , India maintains a terrific blog: http://prophet-of-/ . On the first page of the blog, where there is so much to look at, there is an alphabetical listing of the two or three hundred things that India keeps track of. United States is one of her many topics. Click on it, and you will get to a page that has the Shakerag Walk in the Woods entries. Here you can see her version of what happened in Tennessee. Down the rabbit hole in the blog, the world changes. You will get a glimpse of India's World ("whirled" as she would say) and you will want to go there yourself.
Hydrocortisone is an anti-inflammatory steroid. Its anti-inflammatory action is due to reduction in the vascular component of the inflammatory response and reduction in the formation of inflammatory fluid and cellular exudates. The granulation reaction is also decreased due to the inhibition effect of Hydrocortisone on connective tissue. Stabilisation of most cell granules and lysomal membranes decreases the mediators involved in inflammatory response and reduces release of enzymes in prostaglandin synthesis. The vasoconstrictor action of Hydrocortisone may also contribute to its anti-inflammatory activity.
You have to treat the primary cause or the exacerbation may persisist and reincide. Topical steroids are the primary category of medications used to treat exfoliative dermatitis (ED). A sedative antihistamine may be a useful adjunct for pruritic patients, since it helps patients to sleep at night, thus limiting nocturnal scratching and excoriations. Antimicrobial agents often are used if an infection is suspected to be precipitating or complicating exfoliative dermatitis. Other drugs specifically indicated for management of underlying cause of exfoliative dermatitis may be necessary. [ citation needed ]
