Fever symptoms got you down? If you’re struggling to manage a cold, the flu, or COVID-19 and are looking to find relief from a lingering fever, PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Franklin, Massachusetts, is here to help. Our physician-led urgent care practice offers in-person treatment and telemedicine services 365 days per year, so you’ll always have somewhere to turn for convenient and reliable medical care.

What Is Considered a Fever?

A normal body temperature can range between 97.5 and 98.9 degrees Fahrenheit. Many medical professionals consider a temperature higher than 100.4 degrees to be a fever, although having an elevated body temperature isn’t necessarily a cause for alarm. Running a fever means your immune system is functioning as it should by fighting off foreign invaders like bacteria and viruses.

Still, dealing with fever symptoms is never fun. Do yourself a favor and reach out to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for fever treatment if your symptoms—which may include aching, intense fatigue, diarrhea, and constipation—persist or worsen despite self-care measures. It’s also a good idea to seek medical care if your infant or toddler has a fever.

When to Seek Emergency Fever Treatment

Although uncommon, some fever symptoms warrant immediate care in an emergency room. Call 911 or go to the nearest ER if a fever:

  • Exceeds 103 degrees
  • Lasts for more than three days
  • Is accompanied by nausea, confusion, a rash, or a painful headache
  • Occurs alongside symptoms in an infant or toddler

"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."
