Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a common respiratory viral infection. Though most diagnosed in children, RSV can affect people of all ages. RSV typically develops as a mild illness with cold-like symptoms for healthy children and adults. However, the virus can cause pneumonia and bronchiolitis in very young children, and severe reactions for older adults and those with underlying health conditions.
AFC Urgent Care Lakewood provides on-site RSV diagnosis & symptom relief for mild to moderate infections. If you have any concern whether you or your child may have developed RSV, visit the walk-in clinic at AFC Lakewood. Together, we can help plan proper treatment. Schedule your appointment now or simply walk right in.
The medical providers at AFC Lakewood specialize in family urgent care services. RSV is a contagious virus that can affect patients differently depending on their age and overall health. Most cases of RSV infections feel similar to a common cold.
The common symptoms of RSV we can treat include:
It’s important to note that some RSV infections cause more severe symptoms, like difficulty breathing. Younger children and older adults may need to seek emergency care. At our walk-in clinic, we can examine and diagnose RSV symptoms, and offer treatment for mild infections.
Mild cases of RSV usually pass like a common cold, meaning the recovery period is anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks. The first step to getting proper treatment is to seek medical care. AFC Urgent Care Lakewood is a state-of-the-art medical center with compassionate staff and top-notch equipment. Our medical professionals can diagnose your symptoms as RSV and provide treatment. We may recommend rest, fluid replacement, or over-the-counter pain reliever in your treatment plan. If a bacterial complication is present, such as bacterial pneumonia or an ear infection, we may prescribe antibiotics to alleviate symptoms.
If your RSV infection is more severe, we can help answer any of your questions and refer you to the best specialist for care. Whatever your case may be, you can count on AFC Urgent Care Lakewood for comprehensive RSV testing & treatment regimens.

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.
Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
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.
