When & Where to Seek Fever Treatment in Laredo, TX

Fever Treatment Laredo TX

Do you have a fever? A temporary rise in your body temperature, which normally hovers right around 98.6°F, is most likely a sign that your immune system is working hard to fight off an infection, such as the common cold or flu. Along with your fever, you may experience chills, sweating, weakness and muscle aches.

Do You Need to See a Doctor for Fever Treatment?

If you’re feeling feverish or otherwise “off,” use a thermometer to check your body temperature. If it exceeds 103°F, you should seek immediate medical attention. Otherwise, your fever is probably not a cause for concern. To help your body recover from the underlying infection, you should stay well hydrated and rest comfortably at home. Your fever should run its course within a few hours.

With that said, if you’re feeling very uncomfortable or if your fever lingers for more than two days, you should see a medical provider. You are welcome to come to VitalMed Urgent Care in Laredo, Texas, for fever treatment. To determine the cause of your fever, we’ll ask about your health history and symptoms, then perform a physical exam and possibly order a blood test or chest X-ray, which we can perform on-site.

After diagnosing the cause of your fever, we will suggest some steps you can take to help you feel better as you recover. Sometimes, fever treatment includes a course of antibiotics, but only if a bacterial infection is at play (antibiotic treatment is ineffective for viral infections like the common cold and flu).

Could Your Fever Be Related to COVID-19?

As you may know, a low-grade fever is a common symptom of the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19 and you develop a fever, consider booking a virtual visit with an experienced VitalMed provider. During your remote consultation, your provider can expertly assess your symptoms while you remain safely at home, then let you know if you should seek COVID-19 testing.

The VitalMed Urgent Care team is available every day to provide fever treatment and meet all of your other non-emergency health care needs. Stop by one of our locations in Laredo, TX, or contact us today for more information.
