Viral upper respiratory infections

Dr. Thomas Veech is treating upper repository infections that aren't quite the flu.

Symptoms may include cough, runny nose/nasal congestion, fatigue and sore throat.

Prevent this sickness by washing hands with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer.

Supportive at-home care should be tried first. If symptoms do not improve within a few days, you should seek medical attention.
