to Wilson about his behavior to
the staff, Mills said in his re-
port of the incident. Mills said
he went to the hospital, and
Wilson was sitting up in .his
bed with an oxygen mask on
top of his head. He confronted
Wilson about his behavior and
Mills 'said Wilson told him he
"wanted some more medica-
tion-and the nurses would not
give him any." Mills said, "Mr.
Wilson stated he had been taken

nurses any more problems.".
Mills said he was first advised
that Wilson would be trans-
ferred to Lake City Medical and
then was advised that Wilson
would be transferred to Alachua

tion per Wilson's request and
then left the hospital. At 1:30

Based on Rodriguez's re-
ports, this is what happened.
The incident began shortly
after 6 p.m. on 149th Road
where Wooley's son, Harold,
lives. Belle Wooley appaient-
ly drove to her son's mobile
home and began driving
around the home shooting
into the home with a 22-cal-
iber pistol. The son called
911 for help. Deputies sped
toward the home but Deputy
Rodriguez arrived first.
There, she found Wooley
and his cousin, William
Scott, inside the trailer try-
ing to take cover from the in-
coming bullets. On the
phone, the son gave SCSO
his mother's position each
time she repositioned her ve-
hicle. When Rodriguez ar-
rived, Belle Wooley was dri-
ving around the mobile
home when Rodriguez
blocked her path with her
patrol car. She was ordered
by the deputy to get out and
,put her hands up, which she
did. When the son ahd Scott
came around the house, and
the son spoke in a loud tone
of voice, Rodriguez said
Wooley became angry, re-

Solomon stopped and gave
aid to the deputy and then
used Putnel's:police radio to
call for help. When Solomon
gave the call of "we have an
officer down," police radio
traffic heightened as dispatch-
ers worked to find out where
the officer, at that time
unidentified, was located,
what had happened and his
condition. Suwannee County

duty officers from all over the
county, rushed toward Bran-

at the patrol car where the
deputy was standing. The
deputy got out of the way as
Wooley took off in the car
with the deputy firing once
at the fleeing car. By this
time, Deputy Ben Sears was
approaching the scene and
Sears and Rodriguez fol-
lowed Wooley as she fled
northbound on 149th Road
with no car lights on and at a
high rate of speed. Wooley
did put her lights on to ne-
gotiate a sharp curve one
time but then turned off the
lights again and continued
north, where she entered US
90 and struck Tyler Jordan's
eastbound vehicle, flipping
it multiple times. Wooley's
car came to a rest and the
armed driver refused to obey
orders to exit the vehicle.'
Once the scene was secured
and other officers had .ar-
rived, Wooley was removed
and eventually taken to jail.

Tyre said her family would
spend Christmas day with her
granddad in Madison each

was a deacon, she, her parents
and two siblings shared the

Jordan, a Suwannee High
School sophomore, said if
there's anilhing he could say
to others about wearing their
seat belt, it would d be that "it's
a very safe thing because it
can save .\our life just like it
Several members of Jor-
dan's family said he had just
gotten his vehicle several
dass before the accident.
Family members also said
Jordan previously had a
small car they feel wouldn'tt
have survived the accident
with such good results. They
said they felt the\ had gotten
young at the time."
Tyre and her cousins en-
joyed sitting in the living

the children at church.
"We'd fill the paper bags
with candy and chewing gum
and give them to the children

to memory is when I decided
to start making Santa Claus
coffee," she' said. "My daddy

momma, 'I want to make San-

Tyre's mother would help
her make the coffee and place
it on the mantle. Wondering if
the coffee was gone, each
Christmas morning she would
peak into the cup ?o make sure
Santa drank it.
Tyre was led- to discover
who was behind the gift giv-
ing when her friend told her
the truth about Santa Claus.
"When I was about 10 I had
a girlfriend next store who
said to 'me, 'there's no such
thing as Santa Claus.' I said,
'Yes there is.' She said, 'No
there's not. It's your momma

Miss Susie was born on Jan.

lived most of her life in
Wellborn. She was a fine
Christian lady, a real sweet-

everybody she came in con-

the best chicken and
dumplings and coconut cake
anyone was ever blest to
eat. She and her late hus-
band, Leonard Stansel, were
big supporters of the Well-

"There is a way to enjoy the
festivities without h having to
make a New Year's ro. ution
to lose weight."- Meredih Taylor
By Meredith Taylor,
It's holiday time! It's a
time when most of us think
it's a time to eat, drink and
be merry. It seems like
you're not celebrating the ;
holidays the way they are
supposed to be celebrated
unless you "indulge." There
is a way to enjoy the festiv-
ities without having to
make a New Year's resolu-
tion to lose weight.
Here is a list of tips' to
keep your holidays healthy:
If you go to a party, take
a low calorie food that you
will enjoy, such as fruit sal-
ad or vegetables with a low-
calorie dip.. Eat a healthy
snack before you go to, the
party so you're not as
tempted to overindulge. ,
Eggnog is a holiday fa-
vorite. Eggnog can have
more than 300 calories and"
.19 grams of fat in eight.
ounces. Choose to make a
low calorie version using
low fat milk. If you make
your own, leave out the raw
eggs. The last thing you
need to deal with during the
holidays is a case of salmo-
nella.- Watch portion sizes.
Many holiday goodies are
tempting b because it's our
only oppor unity to enjoy
those kinds, f foods. Take a
small portion a and savor it.-
Eat and (hew slowly!
You'll get full faster and
you may e yen enjoy it
more.* If you" want dessert,
take only a h hlf portion to
save extra calhries.- If you
do find that ycu ate a little
too much on orie day, make
up for it by being more
calorie-consciotis the next
few days.* Be i.ctive! You
can enjoy outdoor games
with friends and 'family and
burn calories while you are
having fun. Try' taking a
family walk.* Fihally, in-
stead of making food the
priority, plan on spending a
special time with family ,
members or frier1ics. Food
isn't the only thing:' to' savor
during the holidays.Don't
let added holiday pounds be
an unwanted "gift" this hol-
iday season. Practice
healthy habits and you can
ring in the New Year feeling

"Take This Job and Shove
It" is the title of a 1977 hit
song about the frustrations of
people who lack control over
their work life. Now, for
those who dream about being
their own boss, three Univer-
sity of, Florida economists
have come up with a list of
frequently asked questions to
help aspiring entrepreneurs.
"No matter what kind of
business you want to start,
there are at least 10 important
questions that need to be an-
swered right up front," said
Hank Cothran, an associate
in UF's Institute of Food and
"These basic questions mea-
sure your readiness to own
and operate a business.".
Cothran, the lead author of'
"Ten Frequently Asked Ques-
tions for Small Business
Start- Ups," developed the
publication in cooperation
with David Mulkey, a profes-
sor in UF's food and resource
economics department, and
Allen Wysocki, an assistant
professor in the department.
The complete document is
"The 10 basic questions are
really just the beginning of a
long series of questions that
must be addressed by any
new business owner,"
Cothran said. "In addition,
they will also need answers
about insurance, intellectual
property issues, employee is-
sues and independent con-
Question No. 1: Do I have
what it takes to operate a
business? To answer this,
make an honest assessment
of your. own motivation, tal-
ents, skills and experience,
Cotliruo said. For example .
can \ o'u \ork alone? Are \ou
willing to take risks? Can
you make good management
decisions? Do you have the
physical and emotional sta-
mina to run a business? Do
you get along well with oth-
"Because few people have
all the desirable qualities,
look for ways to compensate
for your weak areas, such as
taking classes, finding a men-
tor, hiring capable people or
adding a partner with the nec-
essary skills," Cothran said.
Question No. 2: What kind
of business should I start?
Consult with local experts
and other business owners of
the product or service you
want to offer, and check with
potential customers to see if
they are willing to pay for it.
Find out what kind of busi-
ness is best for you.
Question No. 3: What do I,
do first? Once you have de-
cided that starting a business
is the right step for you and
you have a doable business
idea, think about a name and
location for the business.
Register your business with
the proper authorities, obtain
the necessary licenses and
permits,',and develop produc-
tion schedules and marketing
and pricing plans.
Question No. 4: How
should I organize my busi-
ness? Most small businesses
are formed as sole proprietor-
.ships, in which business in-
come is treated the same, as
personal income for tax pur-
poses. A significant disad-
vantage is that you, the own-
er, assume personal liability
for the. actions of the busi-
ness. Other types of business
organizations in Florida in-
celude general and limited
and limited- liability compa-
nies. For information on
ways to organize a business,
visit the Florida Department
of State's Web site at
http://ww .w .
dex.html. Other important in-
formation is available at the
main DOR 'Web' site at
Question No. 5: What per-
mits or licenses do I need?
Licensing and permitting
regulations vary with the
type of business and the city,
county and state where the
business is located. Some
businesses face minimal li-
censing requirements while
others are tightly, controlled.
In some cases, you as an indi-
vidual and the business itself
must have separate licenses.
Sources of information in-
clude UF county extension
offices, the, city or county
clerk's office, small business
development centers and the
local chamber of commerce.
Also, check with the Service
Corps of Retired Executives,
the Small Business Adminis-
tration and Enterprise Flori-
da. Obtain the proper zoning
permit before opening your
business. If businesses are
prohibited in the area where
you'd like to locate your
business, learn if there is a
waiver provision or if the or-
dinance can be changed.
Without the necessary permit
or waiver, local authorities
can close your business ini-
mediately. As the owner, you
may face civil and/or crimi-
nal penalties. "Even with
proper permits, maintaining
good relations with neigh-
bors is good business,"
.Cotlian said. "City and
county authorities are cau-
tious about allowing a busi-
ness to operate in residential
areas. They want to avoid
problems with traffic, noise,
fumes, signs, or parking."
Most Florida businesses need
sales and use tax permits,
which are available from the
Florida Department of Rev-
enue's Web site at
om/dor/taxes. Ini addition to
the sales and use tax permit,
there is an Employer Identifi-'
cation Number (EIN) issued
by the Internal Revenue Ser-
vice. Sole proprietors who
hiate no employees can use
their personal Social Security
number. All other businesses
for small business start-ups
must obtain an EIN.
Question No. 6: How do I
get people to buy my product
or service? Sales happen be-
cause of marketing, which
identifies customers and
what they want to buy. Mar-
keti.ng involves six issues,
ranging from the product and
how it is produced to pricing,
promotion, distribution and
customer perception of the
product or service.
Question No. 7: Why do I
need a business plan? Devel-
op a plan for yourself as well
as your partners, investors
and bankers. The plan should
identify the product or ser-
vice, the market,, the manage-
ment team, where the busi-
ness will operate and your
business experience. The
plan should include a market
study, promotional strategies,
current and projected balance
sheets, income .statements
and cash flow analyses. It
outlines how, when and
where financial support will
be obtained and how loans
made to the business will be
repaid. The plan provides
general operating informa-
tion, along with information
about where the business is
now, where it has been and
where it is going.
Question No. 8: What are
.the alternatives to help me fi-
nance my business? Commit-
ment of personal funds is of-
ten the first financing step. It
is an indicator of how serious
you -are about the business
and conveys your confidence
to investors. Personal invest-
ment sources of capital in-
clude savings, current cash
flow, second job income,
home equity or equity from
other property or, assets, re-
tirement accounts, personal
lines of credit and personal
credit cards. All of these op-
tions have risks. "In addition
to personal funds, family
members and friends may be
,a source of financial help,"
Cothran said. "Remember
that successful loans, from
friends or 'relati %es begin
with a contract that clearly
- 'i .
SMALL BUSINESS START-UPS: Hank Cothran, an economist with the
University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, says
people who want to start a business need to answer basic questions
about their readiness to own and operate their own business. He is the
lead author of "Ten Frequently Asked Questions for Small Business
Start-Ups," a document that is available at
http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/FE571. UF/IFAS Photo: Marisol Amador
defines the amount of the
loan, interest rates, and pay-
ment dates and amounts. You
may want to seek profession-
al help in drawing up a con-
tract." Other, more complex
financing options are also
available. Partnerships and
incorporations must be estab-
lished in writing and appro-
priate forms must be filed
with the clerk of the court.
Business loans can be ob-
tained from several sources,
such as commercial banks
and credit unions, commer-
cial finance companies, local
venture capital firms, and in-
surance companies. Howev-
er, venture capital firms and
insurance companies typical-
ly are riot useful for owners
of small businesses.
Question .No. 9: What
records do I need to keep?
The records needed to man-
age your business and the
records needed by the IRS
may differ. While the busi-
ness owner is interested in
where and how income is
generated and where expens-
es are incurred, the IRS re-
quires records that will allow
for the preparation and docu-
mentation of a completed tax
return n. How ever. all busi-
nesse mnijist..keep, bac finan-
cial records- journals and
ledgers, such as a checkbook
register, accounts receivable,
records of sales, inventory,
cash receipts and cash dis-
bursements. Records must
also document mileage, mean
expenses and entertainment.
If your business hires em-
ployees, additional records
are required. Remember that
all financial records are his-
torical documents. This in-
cludes tax returns and the
documentation for those re-
turns. Business documents
such as filing of the business
ship papers, sales tax per-
mits, Federal Employee Iden-
.tification numbers and insur-
ance records must be retained
indefinitely. For yearly tax
returns, keep the records for
three years after the filing of
that year's taxes. Records in-
volving property must be
kept for the entire time the
property is owned, plus, an
additional three years mini-
Question No. 10: Where
can I go for help? There.are a
wide variety of local, state
and national resources to
help answer these and other
questions. The local UF
county extension service of-
fice is a good place to start.
Ask if the office has a state or
national resonTree' directory

COMING IN FRIDAY'S SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT
close one to
By Danny Hales
The Suwannee Bulldogs
soccer team took to the road
for a rematch with the Key-
stone Heights. Indians on
Dec. 12. Earlier in the year
the Bulldogs had beaten the
Indians at Langford field 4-
0. They also had faced them
in the Preseason Classic at
Live Oak, so the two teams
had good knowledge of the
character of their opponent.
The Dogs fought a hard
match but lost 0-1.
The weather was windy
and chilly. Only a few fans
were in attendance for the
home team and only a hand-
ful of Suwannee soccer fans
made the long trip to Key-
stone Heights. The tempera-
ture at game. time was in the
mid forties, and the wind
was swirling and frigid. The
temperature dropped and the
wind grew in force through-
out the game, making for a
very uncomfortable night.
Play was even for the first
19 minutes. Suwannee and
Keystone both had a few ad-
vances, but defenses seemed
to be dominating the play.
Suwannee had a couple of
thrce- free I.1ck-_i n ti lme
period, but were unable to
take advantage of the fouls
committed by the Keystone
defense. With just under 20
minutes left in the half,
Keystone was awarded a
throw in after the Suwannee
defense had booted the ball
out of play. The subsequent
through ball off the throw in
found an open Indian about
20 feet away from the net.
The Keystone player quick-

ly booted a low line drive to
the far post away from the
Suwannee keeper. Keystone
took:the lead 1-)0.
Suwannee's offense tried
to respond and continued
their efforts to move the
ball into scoring territory,
but shots, could not find
their mark or efforts were
stopped short by the defen-
sive line. Suwannee had
chances on corner kicks and
free kicks but to no avail.
Passes by the Bulldogs
also didn't seem to be find-
ing the open players. The
Indian keeper was snapping
up the few shots that ap-
peared to' be on target.
Meanwhile the. Suwannee
defense continued good
play, as Keystone's opportu-
nities were very limited, and
only on a couple of occa-
sions did they mount threats
of promising shots.
Keystone's passes also
seemed to be unable to find
open players, just as Suwan-
nee's attempts. Suwannee
keeper Nathan Moses col-
lected a couple of good
Keystone efforts off a cor-
ner kick and one particular
good offensive effort of the
Indians. The half ended
with Keystone ahead by the
single goal, 1-0.
The second half continued
in the same manner as the
first. Both sides were ex-
pending energy and effort,
but neither side seemed to
be "on their game" offen-
sively. Defense and "ugly".
passes, as later described by
Coach Johnson, seemed to
be the play of the -night.
With about just a few
minutes gone in the second
half, a rough collision be-
tween players occurred right
in front of the Suwannee
goal. A Keystone player
took a hard fall. No cards
were issued, but the Indians
were awarded a penalty
kick. Billy Moran had
substituted in as keeper and
.he was up to the task.
Moran successfully defend-
ed the penalty kick by the
Keystone striker, and the
score remained 1-0.
Suwannee's efforts to find
an offensive opening contin-
ued. Suwannee found some
open shots, but balls sailed
over the net or to, the side.
On two occasions shots hit
the uprights, but neither got
a lucky bounce into the
goal, but rather rebounded
away from the net halting
either scoring opportunity.
On a corner kick, a set
play, by Suwannee, devel-
oped into another good ef-
fort that saw the ball solidly
stike the cross bar just
above the net. Eventually
Suwannee's efforts, that
seemed to be just off all
night,. such as inaccurate
passes, and inaccurate shots
spelled their doom.

Johnson, remarked as stated
earlier, that the play was
"ugly". "It was just one of

that the effort was there by
Suwannee, but the lack of
crisp passes and shots trans-

loss. Johnson felt that
Suwannee had more quality

Marlene Strickland named "Woman of the year il Alriculture" for 2005
Florida Agriculture Com-
misioLner Charles H. Bron-
son, today announced 'that
Marlene Strickland of ,ara-
sota has been named
"Woman of the Year in Agri-
culture" for 2005.
"As one of the state's
most popular 4-H leaders
and president of the nation's
largest beef industry organi-
zation for women, she has
done' everything in her con-
siderable power to promote
Florida agriculture," Bron-
son said. "She is a true
leader with a long and im-
pre-ssie record of service.,
Her vision has helped.guide
Florida's beef industry, and
her work with young people
has inspired a new genera-
tion of agricultural leaders."
The award, now in its 21st,
year, recognizes women
who have made outstanding
contributions to Florida
agriculture. It is sponsored
by the Florida Departmienit
of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services and the
Florida State Fair Authority.
Bronson is scheduled to pre-
sent the award to, Strickland
on February 9. during the
opening-day luncheon at the
Florida State Fair in Tampa.
Tickets for the event are
available by calling the fair-
grounds at 1-800-345-3247.
Marlene Strickland was
born in Sarasota in 1945
into a pioneer Florida farm-
ing family. The pioneer
spirit is part of Strickland's
makeup; she's tough and en-
terprising. She' grew up
v.orkinr hard, helping ,out
on her family's,c:ommiercial
cow-calf ranch in eastern
Sarasota County. The fami-
ly. raised purebred Brah-
mans and crossbreed cattle.
After graduating from Fort
Myers High School, she
married Don Strickland and
together they' started an
electrical contracting busi-
ness, Land Electric, Inc.,
and began raising Angus
cattle in their spare time.
Along the way, Marlene
Strickland also gave birth to
two daughters. .
When their daughters got
old enough, the Stricklands
signed them up for 4-H-and
came on board themselves
as volunteer leaders, head-
ing up a club they named the
Ridin' Rednecks. Eventual-
ly the girls' moved on and
went off to college, but the
elder Stricklands, stayed
with '4-H. The couple
thrived' in the organization;
they were natural leaders.
and teachers. In 1989 Mar-
lene: Strickland received 4-
H's Volunteer of the Year
Award and represented
Florida at the National 4-H
Conference in Washington,
D.C. Over the years she and
Don built a program so pop-
ular that there is now a wait-
ing list to join.
In 2002 4-H turned 100
years old. Tradition is im-
portant in this venerable
club, but' leaders like Mar-
lene Strickland know how to
keep activities fun, exciting,
and relevant to today's
young people. The Ridin'
Rednecks' recent projects
have included collecting
food and furniture for hurri-
cane victims and setting up
a pet-friendly shelter for
families displaced by the
Strickland has worked
with 4-H youth to clean up
and enhance local parks,
and she set up a workshop
for kids to learn about na-
tive plants, beach erosion,
and beach conservation.
She, received considerable
media attention when her
club helped Sarasota's Reef
Ball Development Group
sink 400-pound concrete
balls into Sarasota Bay to
create reef .habitat for ma-
Strickland says she be-
lieves in 4-H because it pro-
vides entertainment and ed-
ucation, and because it al-
lows families to focus on a
common, worthwhile goal
and see progress. Today,
Strickland is one of the most
recognized and successful
leaders in Florida 4-H, and
she continues to pour a
tremendous amount of time
and creativity into the pro-
But Strickland has always
had too much energy and
too many ideas to confine
herself to just one organiza-
tion. Running the Ridin'
Rednecks has prepared her
well for the many other
leadership roles she has tak-
en on in her., community and
In 1985 Strickland be-
,came a member of the Sara-
sota County CattleWomen's
Association and the Florida
She served in every leader-
ship position available at
the local level. At the state
level, she served as record--
ling secretary, Florida Cook-
Off chairperson, beef pro-
motion chairperson, mem-
bership chairperson, presi-
dent-elect, and, finally,
president. In 2000 the
named her CattleWoman of
Strickland became in-
volved with the Cattle-
Women at the national level,
too. In 2005 she was elect-
ed president of American
National CattleWomen, Inc.,
(ANCW). The mission of
ANCW is to support women
in the cattle industry and ed-
ucate consumers about the
nutritiousness of beef, The
organization. sponsors two
very well-known projects:
the National Beef Cook-off
recipe contest and the Na-
tional Beef Ambassador
Program, a public speaking
competition for high school
students. As president,
Strickland made it hey goal
to learn as much as she
could about the organiza-
tion's 2,000 members.. The
year of her presidency-
2005-was a transitional one
in which the organization
took a look at how it could
"'better :phelp'oo)wonmieannt kep
pace with the industry.
Strickland traveled around
the country, getting to know
cattlewomen in every state
and sharing information
about Florida agriculture.
She met with congressmen
and senators and worked to
build up ANCW's member-
ship one woman at a time.
During her 50 years in
agriculture, Strickland has
won admirers in every sec-
tor of the industry. Those
who know her attribute her
success to her keen intelli-
gence, strong work ethic,
kindness, and sensitivity to
the needs of others. A close
friend, Dr. Tim Marshall, a
professor in the Department
of Animal Sciences at the
University of Florida's In-
stitute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences, describes her
as having "the heart of a
mother, the work ethic of an
ancient Roman soldier, and
the ability to reach all peo-

A delicate balance: Skin care
tips for ,the new mother and baby
(ARA) As a new mother, what do you do if your infant suddenly
,develops what looks like a case of teenage acne or a rash on his or her
scalp? And while you're worried about your child's skin, you may be
worried about your own and the changes it experienced during and after
pregnancy. For a lifetime of healthier skin, a dermatologist a doctor who
specializes in the care of the skin can address both mother and baby skin
I"Psychosocial stressors, such as hormonal changes, sleep deprivation,
dietary changes and the new responsibility of caring for a baby can have a
significant effect on a mother's skin," says dermatologist Andrea Lynn
Cambio, M.D., of New York City. "Hormones that also can affect the baby's
skin pass from the mother
to child,, leading to several
common conditions in baby
that can be resolved by
consulting with a

Don't bundle children up too.tightly Heavy layers can make children
sweat, leading to skin irritation, while under-dressing can expose your
child's skin to the elements.
.Infant Skin Conditions
Recurrent diaper rash is caused by persistent wet, soiled diapers and the
use of unnecessary baby products, such as powders, creams, lotions and oils.
"When a baby has.diaper rash, parents should remember to change diapers
frequently, use a warm, wet washcloth instead of pre-moistened baby wipes
on the bottom and apply a barrier creamwith zinc oxide to the affected
area," recommends Dr. Cambio.
topic dermatitis, or eczema, is an itchy, oozing, crusting rash that occurs
mainly on the face and scalp, but patches can appear anywhere. Eczema
treatment. can include the use of an over-the-counter or prescription topical,
Baby acne, which can have the appearance of pimples and whiteheads
along the nose and cheeks, is quite common ir newborns. This condition
usually clears within three weeks without treatment..
Birthmarks, the two most common types of which are hemangiomas and
port-wine stains, may increase in size as a child grows. Port-wine stains are
present at birth, while hemangiomnas may not immediately appear. Oral
corticosteroids can be prescribed or a pulsed-dye laser can be used to
significantly improve the appearance of these birthmarks.
Mother's Skip Changes ,
Dark patches on the face could bemelasma, also known as the "mask of
pregnancy." This benign condition is attributed to ap overproduction of
melanin, a natural substance in the body that gives color to the hair, skin and
eyes.. Dr. Cambio recommends applying cosmetics to camouflage the
condition and wearing a broad-spectrumt sunscreen with a Sun Protection
Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher to prevent further darkening of the skin. A
dermatologist also can prescribe topical creams with ingredients such as
hydroquinone, retinoids, azeleic acid orhydroxyacids.
Stretch marks develop in more than 90 percent of women during
pregnancy. "There are no over-the-counter treatments to 'cure stretch
marks, but a moisturizer may help improve their appearance and control
itching," remarks Dr. Cambio. "Women also may use a sunless tanning
product which can help hide stretch marks, or there are many successful
treatment options available from a dermatologist; such as a prescription
tretinoin cream or laser treatments."
During pregnancy, itchy, red skin is common on the palms of the hands
and the soles of the feet. The best solution for this condition is to avoid long,
hot showers and switch to a fragrance-free non-soap cleanser. An over-the-
counter mentholated or oatmeal-based moisturizer stored in the refrigerator
can provide added relief.
"For many new mothers, caring for their own skin after pregnancy is not at
the top of their list, while caring for their newborn's skin becomes the
priority. A visit to the dermatologist can put a mother at ease about her
child's skin condition, while finding solutions to her own skin concerns,"
says Dr. Cambio.
