Humans of UCSF: Under Her Skin

Columnist
School of Dentistry

"My whole body felt itchy, bumps were popping up on my back, my face swelled up like a hot air balloon… What could it be? On Jan. 21, 2017, and again on Feb. 4, 2017, I had anaphylactic allergic reactions and was driven to the ER by my fiancé. To this day, it is still a mystery as to what caused my allergy. What I do know is my fiancé has surely seen me at my worse and yet, he still wants to marry me. He's a keeper!”
