What's Going Around - Week of July 30, 2017
(WHAM) - Here is what's "going around" for the week of July 30, 2017.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Newark is treating sunburn cases. Use sunscreen and reapply after you swim. The sun is at its most intense between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Once again this week, Dr. Matthew Capuano from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Penfield is seeing cases of swimmer's ear.
Dr. Capuano suggests using ear plugs in the water and to only swim in chemically-treated pools. Don't go underwater in lakes, ponds, rivers or creeks, he advises.
Over-the-counter drops can help to dry out your ears.
Your doctor or healthcare provider can give you the best advice.
