Fever Treatment at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Cutler Bay
At-home fever treatment is appropriate – and effective – in most situations, although there are some instances in which professional attention may be warranted. For instance, if a fever is particularly high or persists for several days despite rest, hydration, over-the-counter medications and other forms of at-home treatment, it may be wise to consult with a doctor.
At UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Cutler Bay, we provide comprehensive fever treatment on a walk-in basis. Patients who are experiencing chest pain, seizures, difficulty breathing, or mental confusion in addition to a fever should head directly to the emergency room, although patients who are in non-critical condition are welcome to come to our urgent care center for prompt and professional care.
