Arlington Cold & Flu Treatment
Same-Day Appointments Available
We’ve all been there – a nagging, itchy, scratchy feeling in the back of your throat that just won’t seem to go away. Is it allergies? A common cold? The flu? Strep throat? Trying to self-diagnose yourself is never easy, which is why we encourage you to get checked if you have any symptoms of a cold, flu, or strep throat. Our team at Urgentology Care will ensure you get an accurate diagnosis and the appropriate treatment for your illness.
While strep throat accounts for only a small percentage of all sore throats, it can cause serious complications, including kidney inflammation and rheumatic fever. This is why it is imperative you pay attention to how you are feeling and seek medical attention, should your symptoms worsen. We aim to be your one-stop center for all medical concerns, making sure you get the care you need in a timely and efficient manner. Many people avoid going to the doctor when they have a cold, but in some cases, getting checked could save you from a severe illness.

Symptoms of the Common Cold and Flu
It is quite easy to confuse a common cold with the flu, namely because they both have very similar symptoms.
Some of the most common symptoms associated with colds and the flu include:
- Body aches and sore muscles
- Feeling tired or lethargic
- Headaches that won’t go away
- Itchy or sore throat
- Stuffy or runny nose
In most cases, cold symptoms show up a few days after you’ve caught the virus and often start with sneezing and watery eyes. If it isn’t treated early on, a common cold can worsen and the symptoms can become far more serious.
If you have the flu, the symptoms will come on suddenly and may include the following in addition to the above:
- Chills and sweats
- Persistent cough
While there is no cure for the common cold, many over-the-counter medications can alleviate your symptoms.
If you or a loved one has symptoms of the cold or flu in Arlington, call (817) 799-7273 or stop by an Urgentology Care clinic today.
