RSV Peaking; Influenza B Increasing

According to last week’s data from PCMC HERE, RSV has peaked and is starting to come down, but is still at quite high levels. Influenza B is still increasing, Influenza A is pretty much gone.

We have also started seeing our old friend Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (enterovirus), with fevers in the 103-104 range and canker sores in the back of the throat.

Strep throat is still quite common as well.

If your child is running fevers for more than 48 hours, or is under 3 months of age and running fevers, we would like to see them in the office. We are having doctors stay later right now to try to meet the high demand, so call early if you need an appointment!
