Beach fever

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

It is the end of the summer and many of you returning from the beach are not feeling so well.

Dr. Patrick Woodward is treating beach fever.

Woodward is seeing people returning from the beach with the sniffles, sneezing and coughing.

It is probably a combination of viral illness picked up in an unfamiliar location and a mild case of allergies combined. It can make you feel pretty miserable.

If symptoms are severe or prolonged more than a week, please see your health care professional.
