Upper Respiratory Infections

If you’re coughing, sneezing, and sniffling, there’s a good chance you’re dealing with an acute upper respiratory infection (URI). Get prompt care at Jovive Health today. We’re here to help you feel better!

An upper respiratory infection is a contagious infection of the throat and nasal passages. It causes inflammation in the mucous membrane of your upper respiratory tract, and some seriously miserable symptoms. Symptoms may include a runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, cough, and mucus production. Fever, headache, fatigue, and wheezing are also common. These symptoms generally worsen during the first 3 to 5 days, and then gradually improve. Most infections will clear within 2 weeks.

The common cold, sinusitis, ear infections and bronchitis are all types of upper respiratory infections.

Quick, Convenient URI Treatment

Treating an Upper Respiratory Infection

When treating a viral upper respiratory infection, our focus is on alleviating your symptoms, since viruses do not respond to antibiotics. Cough suppressants, nasal decongestants, and analgesics such as acetaminophen and NSAIDs can provide you some relief.

If your infection is caused by bacteria, our providers can prescribe antibiotics.

For symptoms that are severe or long lasting, it’s especially important to seek medical help. Secondary bacterial infections may develop, and require treatment.
