Cold Treatment Provided by Our Primary Care Team
A common cold is a viral infection of the nose and throat. It’s most often responsible for causing children to miss school and adults to have to call into work. While adults tend to deal with a cold for two to three days, children are prone to spend more days in bed in order to fully recover. Our pediatric clinic specializes in providing cold treatment to help ease the symptoms of a cold and to have your child feeling healthier in no time. Whether you want to prevent your child from catching a cold or ease the infection out, then our pediatric urgent care can help!
Symptoms of a Common Cold
Most children are susceptible to catching a cold during the winter or spring, but it still remains possible to catch a cold at any time of the year. The most common symptoms of a cold include:
- Sore throat
- Runny nose
- Stuffy nose
- Body aches
Children with weakened immune systems, asthma, or respiratory conditions may develop more serious illnesses, such as bronchitis or pneumonia. It is vital to visit a doctor as soon as symptoms begin to worsen for your child.
