"Allergic March" on Twitter

Twitter is a microblogging service where people answer the question "What are you doing?" via 140-character messages from their cellphone, laptop or desktop. You can select the messages you find useful, amusing, or both. See an example below:

wheezemd @AllergyNotes I like it but I'm not supposed to spend much time on treatment.


The "allergic march" concept describes a progression from infantile atopic dermatitis followed by rhinitis and asthma. Early treatment of allergic rhinitis may prevent development of asthma.

Micro-blogging on Twitter is easy, fun and can be very useful and educational if you follow/subscribe to interesting people.
