Offering Treatment for Fever Symptoms for Patients in Brookfield, CT
If you’re in Brookfield, Connecticut, or the surrounding area and you need treatment for fever symptoms, you can rely on PhysicianOne Urgent Care. We’ve been treating patients since 2008, and we’re pleased to offer fever treatment on a walk-in basis.
How to Treat a Fever
A person’s normal body temperature can vary throughout the day, but it usually falls between 97 and 99 degrees Fahrenheit in adults, and between 97.9 and 100.4 degrees in babies and children. For adults and older children, a slight fever can usually be treated at home by:
- Taking an over-the-counter medication like acetaminophen or ibuprofen
- Keeping the temperature in your home cool
- Wearing light clothing
- Sleeping with only a sheet or a light blanket
- Drinking lots of fluids to prevent dehydration
Keep in mind, however, that if you have a fever higher than 103 degrees, or if you have an infant or toddler with even a slight fever, you’ll need to seek professional treatment. You may also require treatment for whatever condition is causing you to have a fever in the first place.
COVID-Related Fever Symptoms
Did you know that COVID can cause someone to have a fever? Although it’s unlikely that your fever is due to COVID—chances are good that it’s resulted from something much less serious—if you’re concerned about the possibility of having this virus, you can request a Virtual Visit with one of our knowledgeable providers. We’ll evaluate your condition over our secure videoconferencing platform, and based on those findings, we’ll let you know whether you need to stop by for a drive-up test.
