What's Going Around - Week of January 28, 2018
(WHAM) - Here is what's going around for the week of January 28, 2018.
Dr. Matthew Capuano from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Greece is treating the flu.
Dr. Capuano said anti-flu medicine only works well in the first two days. Other than that, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, rest and drinking plenty of fluids are the best ways to fight it.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Farmington is also seeing flu cases.
Dr. Carlson said multiple flu strains are being detected in our area. The best way to protect against them is to get the flu shot. It's not too late.
If you have concerns about the flu shot, you can watch our sit-down discussion with Dr. Elizabeth Murray about the vaccine.
Your doctor or healthcare provider can give you the best advice.
