Sore Throat

If your throat hurts or just feels super uncomfortable when swallowing, you may have a sore throat or what docs call “pharyngitis.”

Should I be worried?

Typically, no.

But don’t wait it out if your temperature spikes above 101°F: that’s one of the key signs you’re infected with strep.

Even if you’re strep-free, a high fever might mean a really bad flu or mononucleosis (a.k.a., mono, a.k.a. the kissing disease). However, our doctors should determine the underlying cause of your illness. That’s because certain conditions can be triggered by strep throat, such as rheumatic heart disease or kidney disease.

We recommend you schedule a visit with any of our b2 locations to get answers, and start feeling beer today.

Sinus Infection

Sinus congestion and the common cold go hand-in-hand. Every time you wipe your nose, you risk spreading germs to your sinuses (not to mention unsuspecting strangers asking to borrow your pen).

Should I be worried?

Around 29 million adults in the U.S. deal with sinusitis every year. The longer cold symptoms like a runny nose, facial pain, and stuffiness last, the more worried you should be.

Acute sinusitis is usually caused by a virus and may resolve itself within 10 days. If you continue having symptoms for more than 10 days you should come in and see a doctor: it’s likely your viral sinusitis has turned into bacterial sinusitis. Bacterial sinusitis occurs in 0.5% to 2% of viral sinusitis cases.

Antibiotics are prescribed for bacterial sinusitis if your symptoms don’t improve after 7 to 10 days, or when symptoms worsen after 7 to 10 days of supportive therapy. Book an appointment at the nearest b2 UrgentCare to get the help you need today.

Cough

Numerous underlying causes of coughs make them difficult to self-diagnose. Doctors examine your specific type of cough and classify it using the following terms:

  • Acute (less than three weeks) - We recommend b2 MicroCare as your first stop to feeling better
  • Subacute (three to eight weeks) - We recommend b2 UrgentCare as your first stop to feeling better
  • Chronic (longer than eight weeks) - We recommend b2 UrgentCare as your first stop to feeling better
  • Productive (producing phlegm) - We recommend b2 MicroCare as your first stop to feeling better
  • Non-Productive (dry) - We recommend b2 MicroCare as your first stop to feeling better

Should I be worried?

A cough alone doesn’t always signal a more serious illness. But if after two weeks your cough interferes with your job or daily routine, schedule a visit at any b2 Cares location and talk to a doctor.

You should seek immediate medical attention if at any point your coughing produces blood or makes breathing difficult.

Skin & Eye

At b2 Care our mission is to deliver convenient access to care when and where you need it. Schedule a same-day appointment for UrgentCare and MicroCare or talk to a doctor after hours with b2 VirtualCare. We’re open 365 days a year, early morning and late nights.

Eye Infection (Pink Eye)

Pinkeye, which doctors also call “conjunctivitis,” is a symptom of several illnesses. However, one of the most common causes of pinkeye is an infection of the conjunctiva, or the white part of the eye.

Infectious conjunctivitis is caused by several kinds of bacteria or viruses. It's extremely contagious and should be treated with caution to avoid infecting others.

Other, non-infectious causes of pinkeye include allergies (like hay fever) or irritants (i.e., smog or chemical exposure). If you suffer from allergies, your eyes may exhibit some of the same symptoms as an eye infection.

Should I be worried?

Bacterial infections are treated with antibiotics, which should resolve the condition after a few days. However, it’s best to see a doctor immediately to confirm that the underlying infection isn’t bacterial, which can cause serious complications and long-term damage to your vision if left untreated.

Unfortunately, viral conjunctivitis is a lot like the common cold: there’s no specific treatment or medication to prevent the virus, so it’ll only leave your system after a certain amount of time has passed. Viral infections of the eye last upwards of five days.

Generally, if you’re experiencing any eye pain, changes to your vision, or if you wear contacts and are exhibiting symptoms of an eye infection, see a doctor immediately to rule out more serious infections.

Rash

Rashes are when your skin changes its color or texture, such as becoming red, bumpy, and scaly. A rash is a visible indication that your skin is having a problem. You may break out in a rash if you’re having an allergic reaction to a food, plant, or chemical.

Should I be worried?

Seek immediate medical attention if you’re experiencing anaphylactic shock.

While rashes are common, you should also see a doctor immediately if you’re experiencing one of these severe allergic reactions in addition to a rash: trouble breathing, dizziness, drop in blood pressure, increased heart rate.

Otherwise, minor rashes and symptoms caused by allergens can be managed with non-prescription antihistamines. Talk to a b2 VirtualCare Doctor to create an allergen management plan.
