Cold and Flu Overview and Treatment

A common cold is caused by a seasonal rhinovirus that infects patients, while influenza is the specific virus that leads to a case of the flu. Patients can get vaccinated for the flu every year while common colds have no present vaccines. A patient with a common cold has similar symptoms to a patient with the flu, but flu symptoms are more intense for patients than cold symptoms. At Instant Tele Care, our provider team can diagnose and address your most pressing cold and flu symptoms such as:

  • Sneezing
  • Fever
  • Congestion

  • Sinus pain
  • Sore throat and difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle and body aches
  • Vomiting

 

Fever Overview and Treatment

A fever is when a patient has a temperature over 98.6: the healthy resting temperature of the human body. A patient’s temperature increases as they are fighting off intense fatigue, infection, or stress, which leads to a fever.

Fevers are most likely to be caused by seasonal illnesses like influenza and the common cold, but can also be triggered by external factors and other health conditions. A list of the most common causes of fever includes (per the Mayo Clinic):

  • A virus
  • A bacterial infection
  • Heat exhaustion
  • Certain inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis — inflammation of the lining of your joints (synovium)
  • A malignant tumor
  • Some medications, such as antibiotics and drugs used to treat high blood pressure or seizures
  • Some immunizations, such as the diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis (DTaP) or pneumococcal vaccine
