Evaluating Fever Symptoms in Mohegan Lake, NY

A fever is characterized by a rise in normal body temperature—most commonly, any temperature above 100.4°F. A fever is often a symptom of an illness and the body’s way of fighting infection. Often, a fever can be treated at home. Doctors recommend drinking lots of fluids to replenish the body and taking ibuprofen or acetaminophen to reduce the fever and ease any discomfort.

Adults with a fever above 103°F or whose elevated body temperature is accompanied by a severe headache, a rash, abdominal pain, vomiting, a stiff neck, or confusion should seek medical attention, as there may be an underlying infection that needs to be treated. PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Mohegan Lake, New York, is open every day of the year to evaluate fever symptoms, and our experienced medical providers will offer the individualized care you need.

Fevers in Young Children

It’s common for young children to have fevers, and for the large majority of cases, these fevers can be treated at home. However, any child experiencing irritability, an inability to soothe, or excessive thirst may require medical treatment. A persistent temperature above 104°F or a temperature of at least 100.4°F for more than three days are also signs that professional fever treatment is needed, and you can visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care for that.

For babies and children younger than two years old, a temperature of 100.4°F is cause for concern. Our skilled providers can evaluate your little one to determine the cause of the fever symptoms.

"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."
