People all over town are talking about that gnarly stomach bug. We warned you about it about a month ago. But it's still an issue, even for our doctors.
This information comes from the physicians with Asthma and Allergy Associates here in Colorado Springs. The main symptoms include nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. To get to feeling better, you have to stay hydrated, you need your rest and you need to wash your hands to keep this bug from spreading. We'll keep you posted on how this virus continues to spread.
But there’s also a growing trend of ear infections. We're hearing that from the doctors with EmergiCare in Colorado Springs and they're seeing it in kids and adults. Symptoms include ear pain, decreased hearing, sore throat, dizziness and fever. But in kids, it can also present with pulling/tugging at the ear, crying/fussiness, difficulty sleeping, headache and fever, along with vomiting and diarrhea. Even though ear aches seem pretty common, they can also be serious. If it’s left untreated, certain ear infections can lead to decreased hearing. It can also lead to speech and developmental delays in kids. So it's important to be seen by your doctor.
