Feel better, faster. Get started

When to see a doctor for an Upper Respiratory Infection

We recommend you see a doctor if you have shortness of breath, if symptoms persist for more than 10 days or if you have a fever lasting more than 2 days (despite taking fever meds). Some over-the-counter meds that will help suppress symptoms are Tylenol Cold, Robitussin DM, and Vicks DayQuil. Otherwise, we recommend rest, fluids and, if symptoms persist or worsen, text with a doctor and continue the conversation with K.
