(WHAM) - Here is what's going around for the week of April 10, 2017.
Dr. Matthew Capuano from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Penfield is treating allergies.
Dr. Capuano said patients should use an over-the-counter antihistamine, wash their hands after spring cleaning, and not to allow pets on furniture after playing outside.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Newark is seeing poison ivy rashes.
Dr. Carlson said poison ivy plants have not yet spouted huge leaves yet, but the vines can cause a rash. He said to use over-the-counter lotions or soaps if you are cleaning up your garden or hedge rows.
Your doctor or healthcare provider can give you the best advice.
