Do I need treatment for the flu?
You may have heard that the flu cannot be treated, only managed. This is technically correct – the flu is a viral infection that must simply run its course. However, it’s a good idea to visit Lifeline Urgent Care at the first sign of flu symptoms to receive antiviral medication that can potentially shorten the duration and severity of your illness. It’s also important to seek professional medical care if you are at a higher risk of experiencing flu complications, which can sometimes be life-threatening. High-risk groups include:
Adults over age 65
Children younger than five
Residents or employees of nursing homes, rehab centers, and other long-term care facilities
Women who are pregnant or have recently given birth
People with chronic illnesses like diabetes, liver disease, and heart disease
In the event that you or a loved one is experiencing shortness of breath, severe chest pain, very high fever, frequent vomiting, marked dizziness, or confusion, visit an emergency room or call 911 immediately.
