Is It the Flu or Just a Cold?

Sore throat, body aches, sneezing, congestion, cough, chills, headache, and general fatigue are all common symptoms of the flu. They can also be symptoms of having a bad cold or sinus infection. How can you tell the difference? Well, for starters, a fever is a good indicator that you may have something more serious than a cold. A fever is generally rare during a cold, but is a common symptom of the flu. Additionally, the flu will come on rapidly while cold symptoms appear more gradually.

What Does Flu Treatment Entail?

A common treatment for the flu is antiviral medication, and it should be started within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms. However, not everyone needs to take medication. Sometimes, at-home remedies are the best course of action. This includes getting plenty of rest, drinking fluids, and taking over-the-counter pain relievers to help with body aches and fever. When you come to our urgent care center for flu treatment, the practitioner you see will recommend the best plan for your needs.

"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."
