What's Going Around - Week of March 13, 2017
(WHAM) - Here is what's going around for the week of March 13, 2017.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Newark is treating cases of pink eye.
Dr. Carlson says a cool, moist washcloth will help dissolve the crusting and decrease swelling. It is also important to remember good hand hygiene, avoid sharing towels, and try not to touch your eyes with your fingers.
Dr. Matthew Capuano from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Pittsford is treating back pain - especially from shoveling.
Dr. Stern said the best thing patients can do is stretch before exercusing and to limit exertion to 30 minutes at a time. He also said to use ice and make sure to get plenty of rest.
Your doctor or healthcare provider can give you the best advice.
