(WHTM) – Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health Physicians Roseville Pediatrics reports a lot of viruses, many of which are classic colds. They still see COVID-19 cases, although the numbers dropped slightly from last week.

They see sore throat due to sore throat, post-nasal drainage, COVID and mono.

They saw an increase in mono-cases this week. They have also seen asthma exacerbations, especially with the cold weather.

Group cases continued and the number of cases of stomach upset increased this week.

Dr. Joan Thode gave the following advice on vomiting and diarrhea:

“Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. The primary goal of a child with acute vomiting and / or diarrhea is hydration. Water is the most ideal hydration in children over 12 months. Babies younger than 12 months still have immature kidneys, so hydration efforts should be coordinated with “Your child’s doctor. Electrolyte solutions such as Pedialyte can be used for vomiting or diarrhea, bearing in mind that water should be the primary form of rehydration. Products such as popular sports drinks are often more harmful than useful due to their high sugar content.”

While your child’s doctor may prescribe a medication that reduces vomiting, anti-diarrhea medications are not recommended as they make the infection stay longer in the intestines. Children of all ages who are unable to hold fluids due to vomiting and / or show signs of dehydration; less urine output, fewer tears, dry mouth, cracked lips should be assessed by their doctor sooner rather than later. “

This week, UPMC Children’s Community Pediatrics in York and Spring Grove continue to primarily see patients with COVID-19 and sore throat.
