More than 25 million Americans suffer from asthma, a chronic disease that causes the airways to become narrowed and inflamed.

In most cases, the symptoms related to a cold virus will typically subside after just a few days. However, symptoms can sometimes linger stubbornly. While there is no cure for the common cold, patients experiencing a runny nose and congestion along with sneezing and coughing can come to First Med Immediate Medical Care to find relief and ensure symptoms do not worsen.
Sometimes, it can be unclear whether symptoms are indicative of a cold or flu. However, when flu symptoms are left untreated, it can lead to more significant health concerns such as bronchitis or pneumonia, which can be especially dangerous if you have asthma. At First Med Immediate Medical Care, we can perform a proper diagnosis and prescribe medication to fight the flu virus.
