Common flu symptoms include:

If you live in the Downingtown area and have had a cough and congested nose linger for a few days, you may have the flu. If you find yourself also running a fever, you need to make a run to AFC Urgent Care Downingtown today for immediate treatment. If you have the flu, also known as influenza, you shouldn’t wait it out. Chances are you are contagious, and you could be putting the health of your family and coworkers at risk. You need a medical professional to diagnose you and prescribe the right treatment to help you feel better.

Fortunately, AFC Urgent Care Downingtown is equipped with a state of the art lab that can test you for the flu. Once it is confirmed, our board-certified doctors can give you the proper medication and advice you need to start to feel better. The type of flu you have will determine the treatment, so testing is vital!

Common flu symptoms include:

  • A 100°F or higher fever or feeling feverish (not everyone with the flu has a fever)
  • A cough and/or a sore throat
  • A runny or stuffy nose
  • Headaches and/or body aches
  • Chills
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea (most common in children)

If you don’t feel better within the first few days of your illness and feel like it is getting worse, come in right away and get tested. No appointment is ever needed to see one of our doctors or access our on-site lab for diagnostic testing. We are here when you need us seven days a week!
