    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!

    Dr. RAY,
    I HAVE A SMITH AND NEPHEW GENESIS 11 KNEE REPLACEMENT. I HAVE A SKIN RASH, LICHEN PLANUS. IT STARTED TWO WEEKS AFTER THE TKR. DOCTOR TOLD ME NOT TO LISTEN TO PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET, BUT I KNOW ALL OF THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT CRAZY, ESPECIALLY WHEN EVERYONE IS SAYING THE SAME THING. I WOULD LOVE TO BE A CASE STUDY. I HAVE TAKEN PICTURES OF MY RASH EVERY MONTH SINCE I STARTED TO GET THE RASH AS WELL AS ANY MEDICATION THAT I'VE TAKEN.
