Does your kid have a runny nose? They're not alone. That's one of the symptoms plaguing kids in the southwest part of Colorado Springs.

Dr. Steven Reich with Colorado Springs Health Partners says bronchiolitis is going around.

Here's a look at the symptoms: beyond the bad runny nose, these kids wheeze a lot and may have an ear infection. All these symptoms can affect your child's oxygen level. So talk to your doctor about the proper course of action

Also, we aren't hearing about H1N1 or the seasonal flu much right now. But both are still around.

In fact, folks with Asthma and Allergy Associates, PC and Research Center want to remind everyone to make sure to get your flu vaccines. They tell us there are still 3-4 months left in this flu season. So even if you've already had one of these viruses, you'll still benefit from getting the vaccine.
