Cold Flu Step Throat
Clearwater Cold Flu Step Throat at AFC Urgent Care
Even in the warm Floridian winter, upper respiratory infections including cold, flu and strep throat are possible in patients of all ages, especially if you are traveling between drastically different climates on vacation. While early symptoms can be treated at home using over-the-counter medications, fluids and rest, more serious symptoms and cases will require medical attention for the proper care. Conveniently located on North McMullen Booth Road in Bayside Bridge Plaza, AFC Urgent Care Clearwater is open seven days a week to diagnose and treat upper respiratory infections.
What are the symptoms of an upper respiratory infection?
Symptoms of an upper respiratory infection may vary based on several factors, including the type and where the infection itself is located. Common symptoms that can be easily treated at AFC Urgent Care include:
Chest congestion and cough
Sinus pain and heaviness
Stuffed and/or runny nose
More serious symptoms may require an emergency room visit for further treatment due to their severity. If you experience a fever over 102 F, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing or dizziness, you should visit an emergency room immediately. It should be noted that an upper respiratory infection could form after getting over an ear infection, which primarily affects younger children.
