What Is Considered a Fever?
A fever is a rise in normal body temperature, and a telling symptom that something abnormal is happening within the immune system. At-home fever treatment includes taking acetaminophen or ibuprofen to ease any discomfort and staying well-hydrated. However, you should visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care if you have a temperature above 103°F or if your fever is accompanied by any of the following symptoms:
- A severe headache
- Frequent vomiting
- A stiff neck
- A rash
- Sensitivity to bright light
- Abdominal pain
If your child has a fever, come to our urgent care center if he or she:
- Has a temperature above 104°F
- Is irritable, thirstier than usual, and/or not as active
- Has a temperature of 100.4°F or higher for more than three days
- Is under two years old and has a temperature of 100.4°F for more than one day
Babies under six months old require medical attention if they have a rectal temperature of 102°F or higher. (A baby less than three months old with a rectal temperature of 100.4°F requires emergency medical attention.)
Fever & COVID-19
If you have a fever and would like to be tested for COVID-19, you can do so at PhysicianOne Urgent Care. We’ll first evaluate your symptoms during a Virtual Visit—which takes place over a secure videoconferencing platform—and then, if testing is the right next step, we can register you for a test at a time that works with your schedule. We offer curbside COVID-19 testing to limit your exposure to other individuals.
