    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    This expert blog by Christopher Gavigan, CEO / Author of Healthy Child Healthy World contains information from a new perfume study by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics . After reading this, you may think more about what you spray or rub onto your skin. Do you know what it is? Could it have harmful effects? Could it even affect your allergies?

    Best Wishes!
