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.

"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."
