What's Going Around - Week of February 20, 2017
(WHAM) - Here is what's going around for the week of February 20, 2017.
Dr. Carolyn Stern from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Henrietta is seeing strep throat cases.
Dr. Stern said patients should avoid sharing things their children may have touched and to be sure to wash their hands frequently. She said patients can use hand sanitizer on the go to keep your hands clean.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Newark is seeing tick bites.
Dr. Carlson said especially with the unseasonably warm weather we are seeing this week, patients should check their kids for ticks if they are playing in open fields or the woods.
Parents should also consider using a repellent before letting them play outside.
Your doctor or healthcare provider can give you the best advice.
