(WHAM) Here is what's going around for the week of October 3, 2016.
Dr. David Carlson with UR Medicine Urgent Care in Farmington is treating viral upper respiratory infections with stuffy heads, sore throats and coughs.
As always, Dr. Carlson reminds patients to sneeze into tissues and cover their mouths when coughing to prevent the spread of these viruses.
Dr. Matthew Capuano with UR Medicine Urgent Care in Pittsford is treating upset stomachs and viral gastroenteritis.
If you have associated symptoms, Dr. Capuano said to follow a clear liquid diet for two days with bland foods. Patients should eat about half the meal size as normal.
Your doctor or healthcare provider can give you the best advice.
