What's Going Around - Week of February 27, 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 tick bites due to the unseasonably warm weather we have been having.
Dr. Stern said patients should wear long sleeves and pants, and even a hat, while outside to cover any exposed skin. She also recommends wearing insect or tick repellent if going outside.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Newark is seeing viral colds and coughs.
Dr. Carlson said patients should remember to cover their cough, wash their hands frequently, and avoid touching anything usd by someone who is sick.
Your doctor or healthcare provider can give you the best advice.
