Flu Symptoms Treated near Valmont, CO

Millions of Americans get the common cold or the flu each year. Some even get both! When you’re spending more time indoors, you’re more likely to get sick from being in close proximity to others who may be recovering from their own symptoms. Some common cold and flu symptoms include:

You may not experience this entire list of symptoms when you get sick. In fact, you’re likely to not get a fever at all if you have a cold. In other cases, those with compromised immune systems may suffer from severe cases. This can all depend on your immune system and your general health.

If you do get sick, our medical providers can prescribe medication to help ease your symptoms. Over-the-counter medications can target sinus or chest congestion, reduce fevers, and minimize headaches.

Preventing General Symptoms near Seven Hills, CO

Both the common cold and the flu are caused by viruses. These viruses constantly mutate, which is why it’s recommended to get a flu shot every year. This is the most effective and easiest way to prevent getting sick, suffering from severe symptoms if you do get sick, and preventing the spread to others.

In addition to getting your flu shot, there are everyday measures you can take to lower your risk of getting sick. Washing your hands frequently and consistently practicing good hygiene are the two easiest ways to prevent sickness. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose with unclean hands as much as possible. Lastly, try to avoid close contact with others who may be sick.
