(WHAM) - Here is what's going around for the week of May 15, 2017.
Dr. Matthew Capuano from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Penfield is treating strep throat.
Dr. Capuano said to avoid sharing drinks, gargle with salt water and drink at least two liters of fluid each day. Treating pain and fevers with ibuprofen is also recommended.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Farmington is seeing allergic conjunctivitis.
Dr. Carlson said high pollen can cause what looks like pink eye - and occurs in both eyes with intense itching. He said to use over-the-counter allergy eye drops to treat it.
Your doctor or healthcare provider can give you the best advice.
