Some common cold and flu symptoms we treat include:
Our team of medical providers at AFC Urgent Care Lyndhurst can prescribe medication to help ease your symptoms. Over-the-counter medications can target sinus or chest congestion, reduce fevers, and minimize headaches.
Both the common cold and the flu are caused by viruses. These viruses can evolve constantly, which is why we recommended getting a flu shot each year. The flu vaccination is the most effective way to prevent getting sick with the flu and spreading it to your community.
In addition to getting your flu shot, there are numerous everyday practices you can follow to lower your risk of getting sick– including proper diet, exercise and sleep. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose with unclean hands as much as possible. Additionally, try to avoid close contact with others who may be sick.
AFC Urgent Care Lyndhurst is open every day of the week, making healthcare accessible for all patients in our communities.
