What's Going Around - Week of Dec. 24
Let’s take a look and see what’s going around this week.
Dr. David Carlson from the UR Medicine Urgent Care in Newark is treating pink eye.
He says good hand-washing and being mindful not to touch or rub your eye will help limit the spread.
Dr. Carolyn Stern from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Henrietta is treating people with hoverboard injuries and snow and ice-related injuries.
She says, make sure you understand your equipment and know how to use it safely. Also, listen to your body! If you are sore or feeling achy, stop, stretch and take it easy. Don’t run out to do something without making sure you are properly dressed.
