An upper respiratory infection (URI) is an acute illness that affects the upper respiratory tract, which includes the nasal passages and throat (pharynx and larynx). They are spread from person to person and can be caused by viruses or bacteria. When you have an upper respiratory infection, you may experience a fever, congestion, sneezing, cough, sinus pain or pressure, sore throat, body aches, and headache. At Cape Family Medical Clinic, our medical team treats upper respiratory infections, including common colds, sinusitis, laryngitis, and bronchitis. We offer urgent care appointments so you can receive treatment quickly.
During your appointment, our team will assess your symptoms in order to provide a diagnosis. 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.
