Dr. Janice Kutilek with the Grand Island Clinic says she is seeing children under a year old with RSV and Bronchiolitis. Bronchiolitis mimics RSV.
Symptoms include coughing, retractions and inflammation in the small airways of the lungs... which causes wheezing.
With babies, you can see the skin pull in between or under the ribs.
She also had a patient with a pilo-nidal cyst and she's seeing scabies.
Little mites burro under the skin causing an itchy rash that spreads.
The contagious rash is located on the waist line and extremities.

Plus the measles outbreak has increased. There have been more than fifty cases of measles reported to the CDC in roughly a dozen states.
Dr. Michael Johnson with the Hastings Family Practice says he's seeing stomach illnesses and sinus infections.
I also asked him about a new medical breakthrough where nine women in Sweden have received implanted wombs in an attempt to become pregnant.

One out of every 45 hundred girls is born without a womb.

Johnson says the treatment might have promise and it will be interesting to see what the trials show.
