Throughout the colder months of winter into the early spring, your body will be exposed to a number of illnesses and viruses that can affect your upper respiratory system. While some cases can be treated with at-home remedies, more serious illnesses will require a visit to the doctor for treatment. If you are experiencing symptoms of an upper respiratory infection including cold, flu or strep throat, visit AFC Urgent Care Southcenter for diagnosis and treatment.
