When to seek urgent care for a stomach virus
The stomas virus, or viral gastroenteritis, is a viral infection that must simply run its course. There is no cure-all treatment for this condition. Thankfully, most cases only last a day or two and can be managed by drinking plenty of water and getting lots of rest.
With this said, there are some cases of the stomach virus that warrant professional treatment. Visit Fast Track Urgent Care if:
- You have been vomiting for two or more days
- You have blood in your vomit or bowel movements
- You have a fever higher than 104 degrees (102 degrees for children)
- You have not been able to keep liquids down for a day or more
- You are displaying symptoms of dehydration, including dark yellow urine, dizziness, dry mouth, extreme thirst, fatigue, and weakness
Fast Track Urgent Care can administer IV fluids to address dehydration and its symptoms at a much faster rate than if you simply relied on drinking water. We can also help address other stomach virus symptoms like nausea to help you feel like yourself again as quickly as possible. Visit us for stomach virus treatment today – our urgent care centers in Silver Spring and Kensington accept most major health insurance plans.
