What can be treated in a sick visit?
In a sick visit with us here at Primary Care 360, you or your child can be treated for a common, minor illness. Minor means the illness is non-life-threatening. Some of the most common issues we treat at our clinic include:
- Ear infections
- Sore throats
- Stomach aches
- Runny nose
- Sinus infections
- Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
- Insect bites
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- And more
What kind of doctor treats infectious diseases? What kind of doctor specializes in viruses?
Sometimes an infectious disease, like a viral disease, must be treated differently than the other illnesses we mentioned above. In some cases, an infectious disease specialist is the best kind of doctor to treat a patient with a particular infectious/viral disease like HIV or tuberculosis. This specialist understands these illnesses very well and may be the most qualified type of professional to treat you or your child. If you believe you or your child may have an infection like a viral infection, we ask that you consider that the infection could be very contagious, so there’s a risk of infecting your loved ones or other people like our other patients and our staff here at Primary Care 360. Please, instead of coming in to visit us, contact us at our clinic for care. We’ll very likely be able to treat you/your child. If, for whatever reason, we can’t provide the level of care that’s necessary and we determine you should see an infectious disease specialist, we’ll refer you to one.
How can I stop feeling sick now? What medicine can I take for feeling sick?
With many illnesses, including viral illnesses, you may be able to just wait them out and they’ll go away by themselves. But if you want to get better sooner, you may be able to help yourself by:
- Getting some fresh air
- Drinking plenty of water (lemon water as well as ginger, chamomile, or peppermint tea may help too, especially if you’re nauseous), eating foods containing ginger, or snacking on healthy foods
- Applying a cool compress to your neck
- Taking an over-the-counter medication like Pepto-Bismol (if you’re pregnant, speak with a doctor first)
There may be other medications and ways of treating a sick feeling or an illness, but this often depends on what’s making you sick in the first place. If the solutions above don’t work for you, then come see us here at Primary Care 360. We’re available for walk-in appointments, and we’ll be able to determine what your illness is and help you treat it right away, right on the spot. If you need a prescription for your illness, we’ll happily provide it or any other treatment you require.
