Nickel is literally found everywhere. Your cellphone? Yes. Kitchen utensils? Yes. Even some of your gold, silver, and diamond high-end jewelry may contain traces of nickel. And of course, the five cent coin is obviously made of nickel too.

Dr. Bassett Contributes to NJ.com – If you have allergies, this week could be a nightmare

The relentless streak of soggy days that darkened the sky and dampened the ground across the region last week may have spoiled the mood of many New Jerseyans, but it helped some allergy sufferers by keeping the pollen counts down, experts say. Now for some bad news: The sunshine that returned on Sunday and Monday triggered the release of a lot more tree pollen, and that upward trend is expected to continue this week, with more dry days than wet days in the forecast. The tree pollen count on Monday in northern New Jersey was 939 grains per cubic meter, which […]

April showers bring May flowers – and a whole lotta sneezing and itchy eyes. And this year, according to experts, allergies are going to be worse than ever. “We’re seeing allergy symptoms become more severe and start earlier,” says Dr. Neeta Ogden, an NYC-based allergist. She and other doctors attribute this to environmental shifts and climate change. “What determines if there is more or less pollen is temperature, humidity or rainfall,” says Dr. Darryl Zeldin, scientific director at National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

Dr. Silverman Contributes to Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology – Association between chronic urticaria and self-reported penicillin allergy

This link between chronic urticaria and self-reported penicillin allergy highlights the need for clinicians to inquire about self-reported penicillin allergy in patients with chronic urticaria and to consider penicillin skin testing.

The spring allergy season is just around the corner, which means it’s almost time to stock up on tissues, nasal spray and anything else you use to beat the incoming “pollen vortex.” A few factors, including the mostly mild winter thus far and the presence of El Niño, could mean that the 2016 spring allergy season will be bigger and badder than previous years. “In any year with an El Niño phenomenon, we expect certain areas of the country, particularly in the South, to be plagued by lots of rainfall and precipitation,” Dr. Clifford Bassett, founder and medical director at […]
