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.

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.

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.

The crack cocaine epidemic appears to be causing a rash of strokes among young users, and smoking crack may be like playing "Russian roulette" for people with weakened blood vessels in the brain, researchers reported today in the New England Journal of Medicine. A study involving 28 people who suffered strokes within 72 hours of using crack found a strong link between drug use and the appearance of brain-damaging hemorrhages and blockages of blood vessels.

Laguna Beach police are warning residents to lock their homes in the wake of a rash of residential burglaries. There has a "noticeable increase" in residential burglaries from March to May this year, Sgt. Ray Lardie said. He said 44% were reported in the central part of the city and 28% in recently annexed South Laguna. While it does not appear that there is a single suspect, Lardie said most of the burglaries occurred between Thursdays and Sundays, during the daytime. Most homes were entered through unlocked doors and windows, although a "significant number" of burglaries were committed with forced entry.
