Fever Treatment

Worried About Your Fever Symptoms in Bristol, CT?

While having a fever—which is a temporary increase in normal body temperature—wasn’t always cause for alarm, especially among adults, things have gotten more complicated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fever is one of the most common symptoms of the novel coronavirus, so it makes sense that you may be worried that you contracted COVID-19 if you have an elevated temperature. PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Bristol, Connecticut, can ease your concerns. We offer COVID-19 testing as well as fever treatment for adults and children seven days per week.

Discerning the Cause of Your Fever Symptoms

In many cases, having a fever is a good thing as it means that your immune system is working effectively to fight an infection. Along with a fever, you may experience sweating, chills, muscle aches, headache, dehydration, and general weakness, but taking a fever-reducing medication, staying hydrated, and getting lots of rest may help you find relief.

If your fever has not gone away after a few days or if it’s 103°F or higher, you should come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for prompt fever treatment. You should also seek medical treatment for fever symptoms if you are experiencing:

  • A severe headache
  • A rash
  • A stiff neck
  • Abdominal pain
  • Unusual sensitivity to bright light

We’ll identify the underlying cause of your fever symptoms and prescribe the appropriate treatment plan for your needs. This may include antibiotics, antiviral drugs, or over-the-counter medication.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
