TORONTO -- Even though Orioles third basemen entered the final regular-season series having committed five errors over the past seven games, manager Buck Showalter isn't concerned about the position heading into the postseason. Defense has been one of the keys to the Orioles' success over the past three seasons. But since they lost American League Platinum Glove winner Manny Machado for the season following right-knee surgery in August, the club has struggled to find a steady replacement.

I was in the hospital for knee surgery and got a terrible rash on my back. The nurses said it was probably from chemicals used to launder the sheets. Is this true? It could be. These rashes happen "with enough frequency that we do see it. They're often due to the high amounts of bleach and whitening agents in the detergent" used in hospital laundering, said Dr. John Williams, a dermatologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. Commercial laundries use much harsher chemicals than people use at home, he said, and these agents can cause contact dermatitis, a rash that in most cases is simply a reaction to an irritating substance but 20 percent of the time is a genuine allergic reaction, in which immune cells gear up to fight the offending substance.

As someone who runs along the Inner Harbor frequently, it's easy to recall the many times walkers would stop to see the trapeze school participants and teachers performing there a decade ago. It was a natural draw, especially in the evening with lights beaming on the net-surrounded spot. The high cost of the attraction probably did it in. But it is with some dismay that I read about plans regarding Rash Field that would take away the constant attraction that is the beach volleyball courts ( "City looks at another go-round at Rash Field," July 11)

It is astonishing that the idea of hiding a 300-space underground parking garage underneath Rash Field has taken this long to emerge. Better late than never, though, because this proposal makes eminent sense.The Inner Harbor along Key Highway, from Locust Point to the Maryland Science Center, is changing. The American Visionary Art Museum is under construction, the Baltimore Museum of Industry is expanding and the second stage of the HarborView high-rise complex is on the drawing board. Key Highway itself is being resurfaced.

Q: My daughter came home from sleep-away camp with an itchy rash on her chest, back and shoulders. Some of the spots are white, but it doesn't look like poison ivy.A: It sounds like your daughter has a fungal infection called tinea versicolor. The fungus that causes it (Pityrosporum ovale) normally lives on the skin but tends to thrive in warm, humid weather. The spots are white because infected areas of the skin do not tan. However, the rash may also appear as hyperpigmented (darkened) or scaly areas.

I've got a bad reaction on my hand between my thumb and forefinger that I think resulted from pulling an unknown weed. It isn't responding to my usual treatment, a concoction of tea tree oil, witch hazel and rose-water. This is a crusty, itchy rash, like a severe case of mango poisoning I had several years ago. When I fed my little dog mango, he loved it and gave me kisses on the side of my face. The resulting horrible rash kept me in my apartment for a week. Now I don't get within 5 feet of a mango, so that's not the problem.

Q. To combat psoriasis and eczema, I talked my husband into taking some flaxseed oil capsules in the hope of ridding him of a rash that he had had for more than a year. Medications from the doctor, including prednisone, had done no good at all. Within two weeks, the rash cleared, and as long as he continues to take the capsules, he remains rash-free. Is it true that flaxseed oil can also lower cholesterol? Are there any other benefits associated with this dietary supplement? And are there any risks we should know about?

It's a small property tied to the fate of a much bigger one. The Inner Harbor merry-go-round, which has struggled for years, sits next to Rash Field, a roughly 7-acre expanse of volleyball pits and muddy field ringed by gray concrete, that city and civic leaders have long dreamed of turning into a bigger, better attraction. The basic plan for the field - to build an underground parking garage and place a park on top - was proposed by a team hired by the city in 1994. It has reappeared in similar guises at least four times since, racking up hundreds of thousands dollars in planning fees, before retreating each time for lack of funding and support.

As three Arabbers rode through South Baltimore on their horse-drawn fruit cart, a Chevrolet Impala barreled toward them. The men jumped off just before the car slammed their wagon into a utility pole, spilling watermelons and cantaloupes across the sidewalk. Tony, the tan Palomino that had been pulling the cart, escaped with only minor scratches. He was soon munching grass in a nearby median. The produce vendors consider themselves lucky to have survived, but the incident last year was one of several recent crashes that have put Baltimore's community of Arabbers on edge.

I am offended by your Nov. 17 editorial on the new Inner Harbor plan ( "Inner Harbor reborn" . Your implication that the Baltimore Beach Volleyball League at Rash Field is just another in a "hodgepodge of attractions" is insulting. For 10 years, this league has anchored the southern part of the Inner Harbor, providing a healthy, fun sport for thousands of city and non-city residents. Every night of the week people come together to play, then go out and spend money at local establishments.
