10-21-12: What’s Going Around?

It continues to be a busy ‘sick’ season.  Even I caught something this week!  I tried to get in with my doctor on Friday morning, but he was out sick!

We’ve had 6 cases of the flu already this season – all have been influenza type B except for one patient.  I’ve seen about 50/50 for viral sore throats vs. strep throat.  Also, there has been quite a bit of vomiting and diarrhea.  Don’t forget to check out the website for information on how to handle all of these symptoms and ‘fever reducing dose charts.’
