When to Go to Urgent Care for Cough

If you’ve been dealing with an upper respiratory illness, you may wonder when to see a doctor for a cough.

Here are some reasons to consider a visit to a medical professional at urgent care when you’re dealing with a cough:

  • If the cough lasts for more than three weeks.
  • If the cough is accompanied by chest pain, difficulty breathing, high fever, or coughing up blood.
  • If you have health issues like asthma or a weak immune system, the cough worsens over time.
  • If you've been in areas with contagious illnesses or close to someone with a bad cough who has been diagnosed with the flu, whooping cough, or COVID-19.

If your child has a persistent cough, It's vital to visit urgent care or a doctor for prompt evaluation and treatment, especially if they are also experiencing breathing difficulties or a high fever.

When to Go to Urgent Care for a Cold

When faced with the discomfort of a cold, understanding when to seek urgent care from trusted providers is essential. 

Here’s when to see a doctor for a cold: 

  • The cold symptoms persist for an extended period, especially if they last more than a week or two.
  • Severe symptoms accompany the cold, such as breathing difficulties, high fever, or chest pain.
  • You have pre-existing health conditions like asthma or a compromised immune system, which the cold could worsen.
  • Concerns about dehydration arise due to the inability to keep fluids down.

Will Urgent Care Prescribe Cough Syrup?

Yes, urgent care facilities, including CareWell Urgent Care, can prescribe cough syrup if needed. 

When you visit urgent care for a cough, the provider will assess your symptoms and condition. Based on their evaluation and the nature of your cough, they may prescribe cough syrup or other medications to help manage your symptoms.

The type of cough syrup prescribed can vary, depending on whether the cough is due to a specific condition, such as a cold, flu, or a respiratory infection.

It's important to communicate your symptoms clearly to the provider so that they can recommend the most appropriate treatment, which may include cough syrup.
