(WHAM) - Here is what's going around for the week of February 25, 2018.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Farmington is seeing cases of the flu.
Dr. Carlson said to avoid contact with anyone who is sick and remember to wash your hands frequently. It is never ever too late to get your flu shot.
Dr. Carolyn Stern of UR Medicine Urgent Care in Henrietta is seeing urinary tractinfections.
Dr. Stern said the infections are caused by many things, but the most common are holding in your urine longer than you should, not drinking enough water, wiping incorrectly for women, or constipation.
For some people, sexual activity or use of tampons may cause UTIs.
Your doctor or primary care provider can give you the best advice.
