Cough Treatment

Fast Treatment for Cough Symptoms in Waterbury, CT

When the body needs to clear its airways to protect the lungs from an irritant, it uses a reflex called a cough. While a cough can seem like an annoying side effect of the common cold, it’s actually a necessary body function that ensures a person can breathe freely with no obstructions. However, there are times when a cough requires medical treatment, such as if the cough has been lingering for three weeks or longer or is accompanied by the following symptoms:

  • A fever
  • Green or yellow mucus
  • Night sweats
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Shortness of breath

"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."
