Live Web Chat Featuring Dr. Lyndall Harrison


The yellow haze in the air signals the start of allergy season. Houston Chronicle health reporter Cindy George will present a live Web chat Wednesday, March 17 at 1 p.m. Dr. Lyndall Harrison, a pediatrician and Chief of the Allergy department at Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, is one of two allergy physicians who will answer questions about allergies.
 
This live discussion comes just in time for spring, which begins Saturday. How do you know your sniffles and hacks are indeed allergies — not a cold or something else? The chat will focus on what works and what doesn't to keep your passages and skin clear this season.
