Need Treatment for a Nagging Cough? Turn to Our Urgent Care Clinic in St. Johns, MI
Coughing is an extremely common symptom that pretty much everyone experiences at one time or another. Although it can be annoying, coughing plays an important role in ridding your body of irritants that can potentially cause serious problems if they’re not expelled. That said, there are many times when it’s smart to seek medical treatment for a cough. If you’re in the St. Johns, Michigan, area, you can receive fast and convenient treatment for a cough and many other non-life-threatening health conditions by turning to Ouch Urgent Care.

When Should You See a Doctor About That Cough?
It’s a good idea to seek treatment for a persistent cough that doesn’t subside after a few weeks. Additionally, coughing is often accompanied by other symptoms that may indicate the need to seek treatment sooner rather than later. For example, coughing, fever, and shortness of breath are among the most frequently reported symptoms of COVID-19. Therefore, if you’re experiencing that combination of symptoms, you may wish to schedule a virtual visit with one of the highly experienced and certified medical professionals at Ouch Urgent Care.
You will also want to seek treatment if you or your child is:
- Coughing up yellowish-green or blood-tinged phlegm
- Wheezing or having difficulty breathing or swallowing
- Experiencing chest pain
