What's Going Around - Week of March 8, 2018
(WHAM) - Here is what's going around for the week of March 4, 2018.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Farmington is treating upset stomachs.
Dr. Carlson said the stomach bug is very contagious, but good hand washing and avoiding sharing the same eating utensils and water bottles will help stop it from spreading.
Dr. Carolyn Stern from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Henrietta is seeing the flu - yet again.
Dr. Stern said influenza A is finally decreasing, but influenza B is on the rise, which explains why hospitalizations are up. She is also treating skin abscesses. You can use warm, soapy water three times a day for 15-20 minutes.
If that does not help, see your doctor.
Your doctor or primary care provider can give you the best advice.
