When to Seek Medical Treatment for Fever Symptoms in Norwich, CT

Having a fever isn’t typically cause for alarm. For most people, it simply means taking it easy for a few days until the fever breaks. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic, having a fever has taken on new meaning. That’s because fever is one of the most common symptoms of this virus. If your fever is accompanied by other common COVID-19 symptoms, such as dry cough, new loss of taste or smell, shortness of breath, body aches, sore throat, or fatigue, you may want to get a COVID-19 test. PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Norwich, Connecticut, offers curbside COVID-19 testing for patients experiencing symptoms. Our facility is open seven days per week, and we simply ask that you first schedule a Virtual Visit so that your symptoms can be evaluated by one of our medical professionals before we register you for a test.

Other Reasons to Seek Fever Treatment

Of course, it’s more likely that your fever is due to another reason entirely. A fever is simply the body’s way of fighting infection. You’ll also want to seek professional medical attention for fever symptoms if:

  • You have a fever above 103°F
  • Your fever is accompanied by a rash, a stiff neck, sensitivity to bright light, persistent vomiting, abdominal pain, or confusion
  • Your child has a temperature above 104°F or has had a temperature above 100.4°F for at least three days

Any children younger than two with a fever above 100.4°F should receive prompt medical attention, which we offer at PhysicianOne Urgent Care.

"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."
