The flu can take a toll on your body. Even though there’s no known cure for the flu, there are some methods of treatment that help lessen the effects. That’s why it’s important to get an influenza testing & treatment in Saint Petersburg if you’re feeling under the weather. Here at Polmed Primary Care – Walk-in Clinic, we can test you and have results in no time.
We pride ourselves on making sure our Saint Petersburg and Greater Tampa area patients receive the compassionate care that they deserve, no matter if they have an appointment or not. Our testing is done all onsite, and results take a few minutes to a few hours at the most.
You may want to come in for flu testing if you have the following symptoms:
- Aches all over your body
- Stuffy nose
A cotton swab is used to swab the nasal passages or throat area to test for the flu virus. The results can be back in as little as 15 minutes to help you get results quickly. This allows you to know if the flu is causing your issues and what next steps to take.
Once the results are back, we can advise you on the best treatment method. There are over-the-counter items and prescription items that can help lessen the symptoms and duration.
