About

Bio

I provide general allergy and immunology care for adults and children. My special interest is in peanut allergy, since my days of research on it at the USDA. I also have interests in chronic urticaria and angioedema, and eosinophilic esophagitis.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Could be a pustule: This is a description of a pustule, which means infection. Best to seek a doctors consultation.

Possible dermatitis: It could be contact allergy. If they don't get better with hydrocortisone 1% cream applied twice daily for a week, seek a consultation with a doctor.

Depends on dosing: A rule of thumb is it takes 5 half lives to eliminate a medication from the body. A half life is typically a dosing frequency. I.e, a medication taken once daily will take 5 dosing intervals or 5 days. A medication taken every 12 hours will take 5 dosing intervals or 5 x 12 hrs= 2.5 days.
