Lots of summertime illnesses are going around, but the number one thing on all our doctors’ lists is tick bites. Concerns about Lyme disease are sending patients in to have tick bites checked out.
First, we check in with Dr. Dracker in Liverpool. Along with tick bites, he’s seeing sore throats, both strep and viral. Mono is going around and children with allergies need relief from their symptoms.
Over in Camillus, Dr. Roval says croup is going around, with a barky cough and fever. Other children have a virus and the only symptom is a fever. Dr. Roval is also seeing rashes and tick bites.
At the Urgent Care in Fulton, it’s sinusitis and tick bites.
Brighton Hill Pediatrics is reporting colds. Coxsackie Virus is also going around. It is also known as Hand and Foot Disease because of rashes and mouth blisters. They are also seeing children suffering from allergies and checking out tick bites.
That’s the latest from doctors’ offices around the area. Your doctor can tell you about the best treatments.
