If you are sneezing, coughing, or feeling overly tired or weak, there’s a good chance that you might have the common cold or influenza (the flu). Luckily, if you’re in the South Loop neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, you won’t have to travel far to get the care you need. That’s because you can visit Jovive Health’s local clinic for cold treatment and flu treatment.
When to Seek Professional Cold Treatment
In many cases, the common cold can be treated at home without the need for professional care. However, you should still consult with a medical provider if your symptoms don’t resolve within 10 days or you begin experiencing more severe symptoms, such as:
- A high fever
- Ear pain
- Chest pain
- Difficulty breathing
When to Seek Professional Flu Treatment
As with the common cold, you should seek professional care for the flu if you start experiencing severe issues like dizziness, confusion, excessive vomiting, or the other symptoms noted above. You should also reach out to a medical provider if you fall into any of the following high-risk categories:
- Adults over the age of 65
- Pregnant women
- Individuals with certain medical conditions (for example, asthma, diabetes, or heart disease)
Young children who develop the flu should also promptly be seen by a trained practitioner.
