Bio

Greetings! It is a pleasure to join a fun community such has HealthTap! I am a triple boarded physician in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Allergy/Immunology and an Assistant Professor at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. My primary passion is educating residents, medical students, and the public regarding allergic and immunologic diseases. My particular clinical interests include asthma, and immune deficiencies.

Hives usually itch: If you have a rash that resembles hives but doesn't itch, it probably isn't hives. Hives almost always itch and therefore is probably another type of rash. Unfortunately, rashes are usually diagnosed by physical examination and the history, so it will be difficult to help you over the internet and you likely will need to be examined by a physician.

Quite Accurate: The methacholine challenge is useful to see if you have hyper-reactive airways that are seen in patients with asthma. If you have shortness of breath but a normal methacholine challenge and normal pulmonary function tests, there is likely a non-asthma cause for your shortness of breath. Depending on your symptoms, though could be a vocal cord disorder, for example.

Immune sys highway!: Think of the lymphatic system as a highway for the immune system. Immune cells are transported along lymphatic vessels and stop by lymph nodes, which are meeting points where these immune cells can meet and interact. If an antigen presenting cell encounters a pathogen in the tissues, it will use the lymphatic system to carry a sample to the lymph node and find other cells that recognize it.
