What we know as “the flu’ is caused by the seasonal influenza virus. This virus attacks the upper respiratory system and causes unpleasant symptoms like fever, muscle aches, chills, sweats, headache, nasal congestion, sore throat, and cough.  The flu resolves on its own in about a week in many cases, but visiting Marque Urgent Care near Irvine, CA, for flu treatment is beneficial for people who want quicker relief from their symptoms. Some patients may be prescribed an antiviral drug that can reduce the duration of the illness. It’s particularly important to visit a physician for flu treatment if you are at an increased risk of experiencing serious complications of the flu. At-risk groups include:

  • Adults over the age of 65
  • People who have compromised immune systems as a result of cancer treatment, HIV/AIDS, corticosteroid use, and other factors
  • Pregnant women and women who have recently given birth
  • People who are obese with a BMI of 40 or higher
