Substances from your favorite makeup to the zipper on your clothes can cause itchy rashes and contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis can be induced by substances that either trigger allergies or irritate the skin, according to an article in the current issue of Redbook, and the resulting rash can occur anywhere on your body, from the scalp on down.

The second head-on collision on area roads in two days put a pair of North Hollywood men in the hospital with serious injuries, authorities said. The latest crash occurred Wednesday night and caused the Pacific Coast Highway near Tonga Street just north of the county line to be closed for four hours, said Steve Reid, a California Highway Patrol spokesman. Two helicopters and four ambulances transported five victims from the scene of the 7:15 p.m. accident, he said.

The Clippers' tentative starting lineup for tonight's exhibition opener against the Lakers at Bakersfield looks nothing like the one Coach Alvin Gentry envisioned when training camp began last week. The Clippers are battered and bruised. Andre Miller and Eric Piatkowski will start at guard, as Gentry expected. The rest is a worst-case scenario that has left Gentry angry and frustrated since players began dropping at the College of the Desert in Palm Desert.

Carjackers seized six vehicles in San Diego between Friday afternoon and early Saturday, and police said a would-be carjacker attempting to seize a seventh in less than 12 hours was fatally stabbed in Mission Valley. In the wake of last week's carjacking in the Gaslamp Quarter in which a 28-year-old Hillcrest man was shot to death and a San Diego County sheriff's deputy was severely beaten, police said the weekend's carjackings constituted a near-epidemic.

With the benefit of hindsight, reasonable people today agree that technology stocks in the late 1990s became a monumental financial bubble. Five years from now, what will the reasonable people of 2010 recall as the great bubble of 2005? Or will they have trouble picking just one? The housing market has become the most discussed candidate for bubble-hood this year.

"Five stars!" Those are Bob Dylan's first words as I step into his Santa Monica hotel suite to talk about his new album, "Love and Theft." "That's what Rolling Stone gave the new album. How many artists have you interviewed in the last 15 years that have gotten a five-star review?" Thinking he's putting me on, I reply, "Well, you're not getting five stars in The Times." Silence. I quickly explain that we have a four-star rating system.

It is a neighborhood of small shops, corner delis and tidy houses and apartment buildings with statues of saints adorning front-yard gardens. On summer evenings, families lounge in aluminum lawn chairs and chat merrily with their neighbors, many speaking in their native Italian, as kids play freely in the quiet streets.

My grandson has bad diaper rash. It is hard for him to walk, and he cries when we bathe him or clean his bottom. Someone suggested making a paste with Maalox. The Pharmacist's Letter, a professional publication, classifies Maalox for diaper rash as a rumor. Nonetheless, many parents and some pharmacists are enthusiastic about this home remedy. The baby's skin is cleaned promptly and gently with water. Maalox liquid is applied with a cotton ball.

Step carefully around the cow droppings as you head down the rutted dirt path, towel in hand, for your 10-minute curative bath in the "miraculous" mineral waters of the Kuldur Spa. A flimsy-looking statue of V. I. Lenin, painted a tinny shade of silver, points you toward the crumbling pink building that houses several dozen baths. Under the dim yellow light inside, you strip off your clothes in a frosted-glass cubicle and turn the rusty taps. A cockroach scurries along the wall.
