DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Severity

For mild stings if you don't rub it and do carefully think of something else, “Nettles don't hurt if you count to ten.” (as in The Little Black Hen by A. A. Milne). However, if the stinging hairs strike tender skin hard and square they go in more (for example if a mature stem whips back and gets you behind the knee, or if you grip a stem squarely with your fingertips), the sting hurts for days and raises a bigger welt, and treatments do little to reduce the pain.

Treatment

There are many treatments for the itching including Calamine lotion, cottage cheese, baking soda, oil and onions, lemon juice, horsetail (Equisetopsida spp.), leaf of dock (Rumex obtusifolia), Jewelweed, (Impatiens capensis and Impatiens pallida), the underside of a fern (the spores), mud, saliva, topical use of milk of magnesia, Burow's solution; all of which are simply rubbed on the affected area.

A warm oatmeal bath may also reduce the itching. To make an oatmeal bath, fill a sock with oatmeal. While filling your tub for a bath, position the oatmeal filled sock so that the water filling the tub runs through the sock into the tub.

Anti-itch drugs, usually in the form of creams containing antihistaminics or hydrocortisone may also provide relief, but due to the combination of chemicals involved other remedies may be required.
