Hurricane season is in full swing, and these major storms have the potential to make families sick long after they’re gone. Urgent care doctors warn families to limit their exposure to floodwater as much as possible. Floodwater is typically contaminated by sewage, animal waste, dead animals, and trash—all of which can spread serious diseases.

Watch this brief video clip to hear about the bacteria found in the Houston floodwaters. Experts found very high levels of E. coli and coliform bacteria. It’s no surprise that urgent care doctors began treating increasing numbers of patients for skin infections in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

Pediatrics After Hours provides friendly urgent care for kids in the DFW area. If you’re concerned your child may have contracted a disease, and your regular pediatrician isn’t available, stop by one of our locations or call us at 972-355-2273.
