There could be tummy trouble on your horizon.
That nasty stomach bug we’ve been talking about is still making the rounds in North Colorado Springs.
Dr. Tom Bartlett with Mountain View Medical Group is seeing more viral gastroenteritis.
As before, you’re going to experience diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, as well as a low-grade fever and mild abdominal pain.
Dr. Bartlett says symptoms are treated with Imodium, Tylenol or Ibuprofen.
This bug lasts about 24-48 hours.
Also this week… a lot of colds.
That’s happening in the Fountain area.
Nurse Practitioner Virginia Quiroz told us about what she’s seeing.
She says there won’t be any fever. But you will experience body aches, cough, stuffy nose, sneezing and sore throat.
There is not cure for the common cold. But you can treat the symptoms.
Get lots of fluids, plenty of rest and take pain relievers for body aches.
Quiroz says a cold can last up to three weeks. So make sure you wash your hands, sneeze into a tissue and disinfect surfaces you share with other people.
