    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,

    Article: Bullying and allergies

    Have your kids (or yourself) ever been bullied over their allergies? We have experienced some harassment at school, for sure. I'm posting the link to this article with a warning I probably don't need to give: don't read the comments. (Although this particular group of commentors seems to have a few allergy parents in it, so there is some sense in there - but you have to read the vitriol to get to it, and who needs that?)
