What is Influenza Testing?
Influenza, or the flu, is a common, contagious illness. Although it may manifest itself in different ways for each person, symptoms may include:
- Chills and sweats
- Muscle aches
- Sore throat
While many people assume their symptoms are the flu, it is important to seek medical care to obtain a diagnosis. With influenza testing, the process is fairly simple. In addition to performing a physical exam, a swab of the nasal passages may also be performed. This swab allows for a collection of cultures to be analyzed.
What are Hydration IVs for Influenza?
Hydration IVs for influenza offer a quick boost in the important nutrients you need to help your body heal. Dr. Laura Markison can customize your drip for your specific needs, but these IVs are packed with minerals and vitamins, particularly vitamin C, to rejuvenate your health and boost your immune system.
What is Strep Testing?
Strep throat is a very common and contagious illness. The most common symptoms may include:
- Body aches
- Pain when swallowing
- Redness or irritation in the throat
- Sore throat
- Swollen lymph nodes
Although the condition can often be treated with the help of antibiotics, it is important to undergo the proper testing. Following a physical exam of the throat to check for redness and swelling, additional testing may be performed. During strep throat testing, a quick swab of the throat is performed. This allows for the collection of a culture to test for potentially harmful bacteria.
