Are you feeling warm, weak, tired, and achy all over? If so, you have the classic symptoms of a fever, which occurs when your body temperature rises above 98.6°F. Unless it exceeds 103°F, your fever is probably nothing to worry about. Most likely, it is a sign that your immune system is doing its job and working hard to fight off an infection, such as the common cold or flu.

As you recover from your illness, you should drink plenty of cold water and rest comfortably at home. Within a few hours, your fever should break. If it doesn’t—or if you’re feeling extremely uncomfortable—you should see a medical provider for fever treatment right away. You are welcome to come to MedRite Urgent Care near Hell’s Kitchen.

Let’s Get to the Bottom of Your Fever

You can visit MedRite for fever treatment without an appointment any day of the week—our mission is to provide busy New Yorkers with personalized care on a walk-in basis. At our urgent care center, you will be promptly seen by a licensed medical professional. To determine the cause of your fever, your provider will ask about your symptoms and medical history, perform a physical exam, and possibly order a blood test or chest X-ray, which you can receive on the spot—we have both digital X-ray technology and a clinical lab on site.

After we confirm your diagnosis, we will explain your next steps. For instance, if you have a bacterial infection, your fever treatment might include a course of antibiotics to help clear it up.

Could Your Fever Be a Symptom of COVID-19?
