When to Seek Cold or Flu Treatment
The common cold and seasonal influenza (the flu) are viral respiratory infections that can’t necessarily be “cured”—instead, the virus must simply run its course. However, this doesn’t mean that you’re doomed to suffer through days or weeks of miserable symptoms. There are multiple self-care measures you can take to help your immune system fight back, including getting plenty of rest, drinking lots of water, nourishing your body with healthy foods, and taking over-the-counter medication to ease uncomfortable symptoms.
With this said, it’s a good idea to visit a health care provider like PhysicianOne Urgent Care for cold or flu treatment in the following scenarios:
- At the first sign of the flu. If caught early enough, we can prescribe an antiviral flu medication to help reduce the length and severity of symptoms.
- If you are at high risk of experiencing flu complications. Don’t wait to consult with a medical professional if you are older than 65 or have certain chronic health conditions, such as heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, or asthma.
- If your cold or flu symptoms worsen or don’t improve. This is especially true if your symptoms are intense or include a fever, wheezing, or shortness of breath.
