What does flu treatment involve?
Like most viral infections, the flu must simply run its course. This may take a few days or a few weeks, during which you may feel fatigued, weak, nauseous, or congested. However, there are several self-care measures you can take to help accelerate the healing process, including:
- Getting extra rest
- Drinking plenty of water
- Having good nutrition
- Avoiding strenuous activities
While the physicians at STAT MED Urgent Care can’t cure the flu, they can help you better manage your symptoms and get on the road to recovery faster. Our team can confirm a flu diagnosis, prescribe medication to address congestion or throat scratchiness, help relieve dehydration, and offer general health guidance. You can also turn to STAT MED Urgent Care for flu vaccines. If you have yet to receive your annual flu shot, be sure to stop by one of our centers at your convenience.
If the flu has left you seeking professional treatment, turn to STAT MED Urgent Care today. Most major health insurances plans are accepted.
