What's Going Around - Week of May 27, 2018
(WHAM) - Here is a look at what's going around for the week of May 27, 2018.
Angie Fenton with UR Medicine Urgent Care in Greece is seeing sore throats.
Fenton said patients should avoid sharing utensils and drinking cups. Remember to wash your hands well and avoid irritating foods and drinks.
Patients can gargle salt water or use cool drinks, popsicles or soup to ease the irritation.
Dr. David Carlson with UR Medicine Urgent Care in Newark is seeing allergies.
Dr. Carlson said patients should use over-the-counter saline nasal rinses to wash out the pollen and naturally decongest the nasal passages.
As always, your doctor or primary care provider can give you the best advice.
