February Flu Blues

Here in the US, flu season occurs in the fall and winter. But while the virus can circulate year-round, most of the time it peaks in February.

Since February is historically the month when most health care providers treat patients with influenza, we thought it would be a good time to sit down with Ed Neuzil, Board Certified Advanced Practice Registered Nurse at Allergy Sinus & Asthma Family Health Center to find out more about the flu and what you can do to protect yourself from it.

Symptom Check

This is usually the time of year when we find ourselves asking, “is it a cold or an allergy? Think you know the difference?

Since not all sniffles are the same, we sought the advice of Ed Neuzil, Board Certified Advanced Practice Registered Nurse at Allergy Sinus & Asthma Family Health Center . He explained what we need to know about both colds and allergies.
