Speedy, Affordable Flu Treatment for People in the Fenton, MI, Area
The flu is one of the most common and miserable illnesses a person is likely to endure, and sometimes it can even cause serious complications. Fortunately, medical advances have led to effective flu treatments that can help reduce the severity of flu symptoms as well as shorten their duration—provided the illness is diagnosed and the treatment provided shortly after the virus has taken hold. This means you don’t want to wait days for your primary care doctor to squeeze you in for a consultation. But you probably don’t want to endure a long wait and pay the high cost of care at the emergency room, either. If you’re in the Fenton, Michigan, area, you have a terrific alternative: You can get speedy, reliable, and affordable flu treatment at Springfield Urgent Care, with locations in nearby Highland and Clarkston.

How to Tell if You Have the Flu
The first step toward receiving effective treatment when you have the flu is to get an accurate diagnosis. Common symptoms include:
- Fever and/or chills
- Sore throat
- Muscle aches
- Nasal congestion
- Coughing and sneezing
If you have the flu, we may be able to prescribe antiviral medications as part of an effective flu treatment plan. However, the symptoms listed above can also be signs of other types of infection, including COVID-19, which is caused by a strain of coronavirus that’s been sweeping the country. Medical testing is the only surefire way to diagnose the flu or coronavirus, and Springfield Urgent Care offers testing for both types of illnesses.
