Expert Fever Treatment Provided at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Keystone Point
Fever treatment can usually be administered at home, although there are certain situations in which turning to a doctor can be beneficial. For instance, UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Keystone Point welcomes patients who have had a fever for more than 3 days, or who haven’t been able to bring their temperature down with rest and over-the-counter medications.
In many cases, an elevated body temperature is a symptom of a more significant underlying issue, such as a virus or bacterial infection. This means that it’s important to not only prescribe treatment for the fever itself, but also to identify and treat any other conditions that might also be present. Antibiotics, pain relievers, and other similar treatments may be used to reduce a patient’s discomfort and/or treat any co-existing conditions.
At UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Keystone Point, our experienced, board-certified physicians have extensive experience treating a wide range of non-life-threatening conditions in patients of all ages. This includes:
