Cold and Flu Symptom Treatment

Cold and Flu Symptoms Treated in AFC Urgent Care Lakewood, CO

In the winter season, you’re probably spending more time with loved ones, cozying up by the fire and watching the snowfall from your window. Unfortunately, it also means your chance of getting sick increases. Flu season runs from October through March, and you can get a common cold at any time of the year. When you’re sick, AFC Urgent Care Lakewood is there.

Rather than spending the cold months feeling under the weather, try to prevent yourself from getting sick at all. Visit AFC Urgent Care Lakewood for any general illness diagnosis and treatment.

Flu Symptoms Treated near Evergreen, 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:

  • Sinus congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Headache
  • Chest congestion and cough
  • Fatigue
  • Sore throat
  • Fever

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 Morrison, 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.

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • When should I choose urgent care?

    If you’re dealing with a pressing, non-life-threatening medical issue and don’t want to see a doctor, urgent care could be for you. AFC walk-in clinics are able to see patients dealing with allergic reactions, broken bones, colds and flus, and much more.

  • Do I need insurance to visit AFC?

    At AFC we offer very competitive rates for self-pay urgent care and walk-in clinic services. We understand that not everyone may have an insurance plan and we make sure that our out-of-pocket patients are given the same high-quality medical treatment that we give to all our patients.

  • How long will my visit take?

    The main advantage of choosing AFC is our short wait times – often under 15 minutes. The total length of your visit will depend on what you’re being seen for, but many patients can be in and out of our clinics in around 30 minutes.
