What's Going Around

No relief for allergy sufferers.

In Mason, Nurse Practitioner Jena King at Allegiance Family Medicine on Hogsback Rd. is still treating seasonal allergies.

Symptoms include: sneezing; scratchy, sore throat; itchy, watery eyes; runny nose and congestion.

Try over-the-counter products to dry up drainage and loosen congestion, or take over-the-counter antihistamines.

You should try to avoid exposure to allergens, when possible.

Call your doctor if you continue to struggle with symptom control.

And upper respiratory infections are going around in Ingham Regional Medical Center's Emergency Department.

Doctors there say the main culprit is viruses or germs that spread to others by sneezing, coughing and personal contact.

If you have a cold, you should drink fluids, rest, and take Advil or Tylenol for aches and fever control.
