What's Going Around - Week of November 4, 2018
(WHAM) – It's time to see what's going around for the week of November 4, 2018.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Newark is seeing ear infections.
Dr. Carlson said fluid behind the ear drum is sometimes treated with "watchful waiting" -- rather than immediately prescribing antibiotics.
Ask your provider if this is an option they would recommend for your current situation.
Also, Angie Fenton from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Spencerport is seeing viral upper respiratory infection.
She recommends strict handwashing, plenty of rest and a well-balanced, healthy diet are your best options to treat it.
As always, your doctor or primary care provider can give you the best advice.
