What's Going Around - Week of July 16, 2017
(WHAM) - Here is what's going around for the week of July 16, 2017.
Dr. Matthew Capuano from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Penfield is treating wasp stings.
Dr. Capuano said to avoid hives and openings to bees' nests and not to throw anything at them. If stung, patients should use ice and Benadryl. Never rub dirt onto a wasp sting.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Farmington is treating poison ivy rashes.
Dr. Carlson said to wash the skin as soon as possible if exposed - and to be sure to wash underneath the fingernails and trim them to avoid spreading the plant oil.
Your doctor or healthcare provider can give you the best advice.
