FEVER

fever

A fever is a temporary increase in body temperature that is often caused by an illness. Mild fevers can be treated with Tylenol, Advil, Motrin IB, and similar medications.

STREP THROAT

throatStrep throat is a contagious infection that causes a painful sore throat, swollen lymph glands, and fever. Unlike a cold or flu, it doesn’t typically produce a cough or a stuffy, runny nose. You must treat your strep throat with antibiotics.

MONO

mononucleosisMononucleosis is an infectious virus that is transmitted through saliva. That means you can catch it from direct contact with an infected person’s saliva, like a cough or sneeze. Symptoms are similar to a cold.

SINUS INFECTIONS

sinus

Also called sinusitis, a sinus infection is an inflammation of the sinus tissue. When the sinuses are blocked and filled with fluid, bacteria, viruses, or fungi, you may get a sinus infection. More than 37 million Americans have at least one episode of sinusitis each year. Treatment depends on the cause, so see a doctor for a diagnosis.

RASHES

rashes

A skin rash is an inflammation of the skin. Some common rashes include eczema, poison ivy, hives, and heat rash. Rashes can also be fungal, bacterial, parasitic or viral. The cause of the rash determines how it should be treated.

EARACHES

Children and adults get earaches. They can be caused by things like wax buildup, sinus infections, water in the inner ear, and foreign objects in the ear.

BRONCHIAL ASTHMA

bronchial-asthma

A condition in which a person’s airways become inflamed, narrow and swell, and produce extra mucus, which makes it difficult to breathe.

PINK EYE

pink-eye

Also known as conjunctivitis, pink eye is a common eye condition that effects adults and children. Symptoms include red eyes and crusting of the eyelids or eyelashes. Depending on the cause (virus, bacterial, allergens, or irritants), it can clear up in a few days or weeks.

UTI

urinary

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection of your kidneys, ureters, bladder or urethra. Women are at greater risk of developing a UTI. Pain during urination and cloudy urine are two common signs of UTI. You’ll need antibiotics from your doctor to treat it.

HEADACHE

headache

A sharp, throbbing, or dull pain in any part of the head is a headache and it can have a wide range of causes. Because a headache can be a symptom of a serious condition, seek medical care immediately if the headache is sudden, severe, or accompanied by fainting or impaired vision, speaking, or walking.

VOMITING

vomiting

When you vomit or throw up, your stomach is forcibly emptying itself. Nausea and vomiting can be caused by many things such as illness, food poisoning, infections, and medication. Seek medical attention if you also have chest pain, blurred vision, fainting, high fever, or your vomit contains blood.

ALLERGIES

alllergies

When you have an allergy, it’s because your immune system is making antibodies that identify a foreign substance, such as pollen or pet dander as harmful, even though it isn’t. Symptoms vary with the allergy. If you believe you have an allergy, see your doctor so you can get the right medication.

ABSCESSES

absecess

An abscess is a tender pocket of pus that is typically caused by a bacterial infection and can occur anywhere on your body. Treatment varies depending on the cause. Often, surgery to drain the abscess, antibiotics, or both are needed.

BUG & ANIMAL BITES

animal-bits

These bites or stings can be dangerous if you have an allergic reaction or the bug is carrying a disease. Call 911 immediately if the injured person has difficulty breathing or has swelling of the lips, eyelids, or throat. If you know you are allergic to certain insect stings, always carry your epinephrine autoinjector (Epi Pen).

LACERATIONS

lacerationThis is the medical term for a cut. The severity of the cut determines its treatment. For minor cuts, apply pressure to stop the bleeding, clean with water and soap, apply antibiotic ointment, and bandage the area. See a doctor if the cut is deep or is over a joint.

STICHES

stichesSerious or jagged cuts and wounds require stitches, also called sutures, to close the wound and allow it to heal. The doctor uses a needle and surgical thread to stich the skin together. Some thread dissolves on its own, and others must be removed.

SPLINTS

splintA splint is a device used to immobilize a limb or even the spine. It’s often used to immobilize potentially broken bones or damaged joints. A splint or cast may also be used after surgery to immobilize a body part allowing it to heal properly.

X-RAYS

xraysThis is a quick and painless way for doctors to see the structures inside the body. X-ray beams pass through your body and dense materials like bones appear white. Air in your lungs appears black. Fat and muscle appear gray.

Preventative Care

VACCINATIONS

vacinationsA vaccination, such as a flu vaccination, is the injection of a killed or weakened organism that produces immunity in the body against that organism. This causes your body to develop immunity against that organism.

WELLNESS EXAMS

wellness-examThis is a preventive visit to your doctor and is one of the best ways to stay healthy.

Medicare and most medical insurances cover annual wellness exams.
