Problem of the week – How do I avoid colds and the flu.

Problem of the week – The past few weeks have seen a dramatic increase in cold and flu symptoms. My patients are often asking what to do and how long are people contagious for. We are often contagious before we realize we are sick and it can persist for awhile after we seem better, so there is no good answer to how long. It’s best to always take the following measures noted below and particularly during the colder months when people are indoors and closed in. Stay Healthy.

See the link below for good hints on what to do to avoid getting sick.
