Illnesses, injuries, and accidents can happen to all of us. No matter how careful you are, you can’t avoid illnesses and injuries altogether. When you suffer from fevers, sore throats, cuts, wounds, burns, rashes, colds, and other general illnesses/injuries, you need access to a direct primary care physician who you can communicate with directly — no long wait times and complex appointments. We treat various injuries and illnesses to help you manage your symptoms and recover quickly.
Cold & Flu
Although we often use the terms “cold” and “flu” interchangeably, they are two different types of viruses. Colds are caused by a virus called rhinovirus, and flu is caused by an influenza virus. Although both viruses can cause similar symptoms, flu is usually more severe. There is no cure for either colds or the flu, but we offer simple remedies and over-the-counter medications to alleviate the symptoms and speed up recovery.
In some cases, coughing is the body’s way of getting rid of something irritating the throat, such as smoke or dust. But sometimes, coughing can signify a more serious condition, such as bronchitis or pneumonia. If your cough keeps you from sleeping or interfering with your daily activities, it is important to see a doctor. We can diagnose the root cause of your cough and prescribe medications to alleviate symptoms.
Cuts are a common injury that can range from a minor scrape to a deep laceration. Treatment depends on the severity of the injury. If you have a severe cut, we can clean the wound, stop bleeding, and apply antibiotic ointments to prevent infections. You must seek medical attention if your cut is more than ½ inch deep or if you have persistent bleeding that doesn’t stop.
Rashes are very common, and there are many different types. Numerous over-the-counter creams and ointments can soothe a rash. If your rash is itchy, an antihistamine may help. If you have a more severe rash, you may need a prescription-strength cream or oral medication. We assess your rashes, determine the root cause, and offer treatments.
