Earlier we brought you the story about the increase in illness during these winter months. Denise Del Colle with Central Oregon Pediatric Associates says last year, there was such a huge scare about H1N1, that this year people might be forgetting the basic practices of avoiding viruses: "Be very careful about touching anything and then touching your eye. Anybody coughing within 6' if the face, the virus or bacteria, floats on little particles of saliva when you sneeze or cough and it can go right into the eye and that's how a lot of people get sick." Del Colle says there is a high incidence of strep, and RSV, or Respiratory Syncytial Virus and croup this season, especially for kids with weakened immunities. She says symptoms include fever and a croaking type cough or wheeze. Early diagnosis can keep the kids out of the hospital. She adds to remember the basic hygiene practices: cover your cough, frequent and washing and use hand sanitizers.
