Expert Care for Upper Respiratory Infections at PrimeCare Urgent Care

At PrimeCare Urgent Care, we specialize in providing comprehensive care for upper respiratory infections (URIs) to help you recover quickly and comfortably. URIs are common illnesses affecting the nose, throat, sinuses, and airways, often caused by viruses like the common cold or influenza.

Symptoms of Upper Respiratory Infections

Upper respiratory infections can present with a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Congestion: Nasal congestion or runny nose.
  • Sore Throat: Irritation or pain in the throat.
  • Cough: Dry or productive cough, sometimes with mucus.
  • Sneezing: Frequent sneezing due to nasal irritation.
  • Fatigue: Feeling tired or lethargic.
  • Mild Fever: Low-grade fever may be present, especially in viral infections.

Evaluation and Diagnosis

When you visit PrimeCare Urgent Care for symptoms of an upper respiratory infection, our experienced healthcare providers will conduct a thorough evaluation. This includes reviewing your medical history, performing a physical examination, and assessing symptoms such as fever, nasal discharge, or throat inflammation.

Treatment Options

Treatment for URIs focuses on managing symptoms and supporting recovery. Depending on the severity and cause of the infection, treatment options may include:

  • Over-the-Counter Medications: For pain relief, fever reduction, or congestion.
  • Hydration: Drinking plenty of fluids to stay hydrated and loosen mucus.
  • Rest: Allowing the body to rest and recover.
  • Prescription Medications: Antiviral medications for influenza or antibiotics for bacterial infections if necessary.
  • Home Remedies: Such as steam inhalation, saline nasal rinses, or throat lozenges to soothe irritation.

When to Seek Medical Attention

While most URIs are mild and resolve on their own, it’s important to seek medical attention if symptoms worsen or persist for more than a week, or if you experience difficulty breathing, chest pain, or high fever.
