Cold & Flu Treatment Clinic - East County Urgent Care

Flu symptoms and treatments

No one enjoys waking up with the telltale cough and fatigue that ensures the arrival of a cold or the flu. When you need to see a doctor quickly to stop your sickness in its tracks and help you get back to feeling like yourself, trust the experienced professionals at East County Urgent Care to treat your worst cold and flu symptoms. Our onsite laboratory ensures that your test results come back faster than ever before, so we can provide you with the answers you need and the treatment necessary to help you feel better fast.

Waiting for an appointment at a traditional doctor’s office often takes days or even weeks. When it comes to treating cold and flu symptoms, we understand you can’t wait that long. That is why East County Urgent Care is proud to offer cold and flu treatments at our walk-in clinic in El Cajon, CA, so you can see a doctor quickly when you need one. Our experienced medical staff is dedicated to helping you and your family stay as happy and healthy as possible all year long.

Influenza and the common cold share many of the same symptoms, but their severity differs significantly, and they are caused by different viruses. The best way to tell whether you have a cold or the flu is to quickly receive appropriate testing at East County Urgent Care. A prescription antiviral may be used to help flu patients recover more quickly, but must be administered within the first 48 hours to be as effective as possible, so there is no time to waste when you start feeling sick. If you or a loved one are experiencing cough, sore throat, congestion and a runny nose, fatigue, fever or chills, headache, or body aches, it is probably time for you to see an experienced physician who can help you begin the recovery process.

Unfortunately, for many people, patience is required when recovering from a cold or the flu. The most important things to remember are to get plenty of rest and stay hydrated. Tea and broth-based soups are especially helpful in not only maintaining hydration, but relieving congestion and increasing the flow of mucus. Over the counter medications can also help reduce cough, fever, and congestion. At East County Urgent Care, we are available 7 days a week, so you can see a doctor as soon as possible. We are proud to serve families in the El Cajon area by providing the best diagnostic and treatment services available to adults and children of all ages.

If you or someone in your family is experiencing cold or flu symptoms, trust the experienced doctors and medical staff at East County Urgent Care. We never require appointments for our patients, so you don’t have to wait to receive the treatment you need to feel better fast. Call us today at (619) 442-9896 or simply walk in the next time you require high-quality medical care. Our knowledgeable team will help you get back on your feet and return to work as quickly as possible.
