What's Going Around - Week of July 23, 2017
(WHAM) - Here is what's going around for the week of July 23, 2017.
Dr. Matthew Capuano from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Penfield is treating wasp strings.
Dr. Capuano said to use Benadryl and ice. If you are attempting to get rid of a wasp's nest, the best time to do so is at night.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Farmington is seeing cases of swimmer's ear.
He said if you do get water in your ears, letting it dry out will reduce your risk of developing an infection. You can also do so by using a blow dryer on low heat.
Your doctor or healthcare provider can give you the best advice.
