The Redness that is Rosacea

On a humid Illinois July day, it’s even easy to assume you’re just flushed from the heat. Rosacea is a word that […]


Shingles and Shingrix

Shingles on our roof are a good thing, especially during a summer Illinois thunderstorm. But if you’re not a roofer the word “shingles” is one you don’t want to come across.
