Some cool itchy skin images:

Little hairy cat found at Chestoa Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It’s hard to tell where front and back is with these critters.

These are stinging caterpillars that can cause a stinging nettle or poison ivy-like reaction, so it is not advisable to handle them. They collect toxic chemicals from the plants they eat and have poison glands connected to their stinging hairs. Some people are more sensitive than others, so reactions can range from an itchy rash to blisters and swelling all the way to allergic reactions requiring medical treatment.

To make matters worse, the brittle hairs break off on contact and bury into the skin much like fiberglass splinters, making it extremely difficult to get them out and causing prolonged pain. One trick is to use sticky tape to pull the hairs out of the skin before they can bury deep.

I attended a French teachers’ seminar over the weekend, and we had workshops in classrooms in a middle school. One corner of the tables in one was rather interesting.

It looked a bit like a skin disease spreading over the smooth white surface. Obviously, one day somebody had started shaving off bits of the laminate to reveal the brown wood underneath, and like scratching on itchy rash, others couldn’t resist continuing. It’s probably decades of teen angst, favourite stars and TV programmes, heartaches and crushes, etched on the surface. Looking at the details, makes it a fascinating piece of collective art.
