Do I Need Treatment for the Flu or a Cold?
While it’s true that viral infections such as the flu and common cold typically don’t require professional medical care, it’s not always a good idea to tough it out by yourself. For example, if you seek treatment at the first sign of the flu, you may benefit from an antiviral flu medication that can shorten the severity and longevity of symptoms. If your symptoms are already in full swing, it’s important to visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care for prompt cold or flu treatment if:
- Your symptoms worsen, do not improve after a few days, or go away and then return
- You have a fever higher than 101.3 degrees Fahrenheit for longer than three days
- Your symptoms are intense and make it difficult to perform everyday tasks
- You experience wheezing or shortness of breath
In the event that your symptoms include difficulty breathing, call 911 immediately.
