Read on for how to tackle the unexpected culprits that could be making you […]

Dr. Bassett Contributes to Bustle – Does Sleeping With A Fan On Make You Sick? The Common Cold Is Caused By More Than Just Being Cold

We’ve officially reached the peak of summer, which means two things: one, we can begin our countdown to autumn (yes, already). Two, it is very, very hot outside almost everywhere. This summer has, so far, brought record high temperatures to most of the world, and that doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon. Dealing with the heat during the day is one thing, but dealing with it at night? That’s when things get insufferable. It’s difficult, if not impossible, to fall asleep when you’re sweating profusely and sticking to your sheets. We can’t all afford air conditioners, and sometimes need to make due […]

Dr. Reenal Patel Contributes to Medium.com – The allergist with a nurturing and inclusive approach to caring for children

We always lived with members of my extended family. Basically throughout my childhood, a cousin or an uncle was always on their way to somewhere and our house in Tampa was a pit stop along the way, which was really cool.

As for how medicine came into my life, one of my dad’s brothers lived with us […]

The sparks that ignite your immune system can range from sunlight to onions, and symptoms of an attack are just as varied. For that reason, we’re spending several weeks writing about allergies—what they are, how they manifest, and how we can find relief. This is PopSci’sAllergic Reaction. Allergies are unpleasant. Just ask anyone who equates the advent of spring with a runny nose or the presence of a cute puppy with itchy eyes. Unfortunately, most allergy treatments—which tend to involve lots and lots of needles—are as unpleasant as the […]
