Upper Respiratory Infection Treatment

Effective upper respiratory infection treatment depends on the source of the infection, which can be caused by a virus or bacteria. In the majority of cases, professional medical help isn’t needed because if symptoms get bothersome, over-the-counter decongestants and other products can often provide the necessary relief.

However, if you’re experiencing the symptoms of an upper respiratory infection, and you’d like some professional medical help with diagnosing and treating it, Physicians Immediate Care can assist you.

As a trusted source of health care for over 25 years, we are prepared to help when your infection has lasted too long, your symptoms are interfering with your daily routine, or you simply want some relief.

We invite you to visit one of our clinics if you are experiencing any of the following typical upper respiratory infection symptoms:

  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Nasal congestion
  • Sneezing
  • Sinus pain
  • Sore throat

Using their medical expertise and our onsite lab testing capabilities as needed, our providers can examine you to see if your infection was caused by a virus (like the common cold) or a bacteria. Antibiotics can be useful for fighting bacterial infections, while the usual course of action for viral infections is to treat their symptoms and wait for the body to fight off the infection. In other words – we can find a way to help you feel better faster.

If you need upper respiratory infection treatment, feel free to walk into any of Physicians Immediate Care’s locations or reserve your time online. We’re prepared to help you quickly with non-emergency illnesses and injuries seven days a week.
