Even with all the rain periodically washing away the pollen, it seems that many people are still suffering from allergies. In this week's What's Going Around, we're checking in with three local doctors. All of them are seeing more patients with allergies.

In addition to allergies, Dr. Charles Cole of Afton Family Medicine is reporting more cases of Lyme disease.

At Forest Lakes Family Medicine, Dr. John McGovern is seeing more people for fifth's disease which is a rash that can be painful and may be accompanied by flu-like symptoms.

Dr. Gabriel Spring of Palmyra Medical Associates says viral infections are going around there.
