A respiratory virus is an acute illness caused by a variety of viruses that affect the upper respiratory tract. They are spread by droplets coughed or sneezed into the air and then inhaled, or indirectly by contaminated hands coming in contact with the nose or eyes. When you have a respiratory virus, you may experience a fever, congestion, sneezing, cough, sinus pain or pressure, sore throat, body aches, and headache. At Rockwall Rapid Care, our highly skilled medical team treats respiratory viruses, including common colds, influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and COVID-19. We offer urgent care appointments so you can receive treatment quickly. Contact our office in Rockwall, TX to schedule a visit for yourself or your child.

What are the Symptoms of Respiratory Viruses?

Respiratory virus symptoms can range from mild to severe and often mimic the symptoms of an unrelated condition. Still, common symptoms of respiratory viruses to watch for include:

  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Sinus pain
  • Nasal congestion
  • Labored breathing
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Body aches

While mild respiratory viruses often resolve with at-home care, like getting lots of rest and drinking plenty of fluids, you might want to seek professional treatment for symptoms that continue to worsen, especially if you have a hard time breathing. During an urgent care appointment at Rockwall Rapid Care, our team will assess your symptoms and perform any required testing in order to provide a diagnosis. We have an in-house imaging lab where chest x-rays can be performed if needed. We also offer COVID-19, flu, and strep testing. To help you get relief from uncomfortable symptoms, we may recommend over-the-counter medications, such as pain relievers, nasal decongestants, and cough suppressants. If you have a bacterial infection, a course of antibiotics can be prescribed.

Rockwall Rapid Care is the best urgent care facility I've ever used. We (family of 5) are repeat customers, and have recommended Rockwall Rapid Care to many friends and family members. We usually use the online booking tool, which is super convenient, but they also allow walk-ins. Most appointments are completed curbside, and the wait time is never more than a few minutes. Dr. Fieldsmith is very friendly and easy going. He takes his time during appointments and the interaction never feels rushed.
