Upper Respiratory Infection

Upper respiratory infections (URI) are infections that take place in the upper respiratory tract. Patients with URI experience multiple symptoms, such as chest congestion, sneezing, runny nose, dry or wet coughing, fever, and more. Sore throat and headaches are also common symptoms of these conditions, which can be managed and treated fairly easily.

Learn more about this dental condition and how GetCareMD can help.
A tooth infection or tooth abscess is the buildup of bacteria and pus in and around the teeth. A tooth infection can affect teeth and gums and cause pain that radiates to the jaw, neck, and even the ear.
If left untreated, tooth infections can become severe and spread to the other parts of the body.

Symptoms of Tooth Infection

A tooth infection can be characterized by signs and symptoms such as;

  • Sensitivity to cold or hot temperature
  • An excruciating toothache can be felt in the affected tooth, jawbones, and sometimes till the ear.
  • Tenderness or swelling in the jaws or neck area
  • Experience foul-tasting fluid if the abscess ruptures.
  • Find it difficult to swallow
  • Difficulty chewing or biting

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, get in touch with GetCareMD to schedule an online consultation for tooth infection.

Risk Factors for Tooth Infection

  • Not practicing proper dental hygiene: Not brushing teeth twice a day and not flossing regularly can lead to toothaches, dental infections, and other dental complications.
  • Dry mouth: Having a dry mouth due to specific medication or just old age can contribute to the development of tooth abscess.
  • Excessive consumption of sugar-rich foods and beverages: A sugar-rich diet can lead to dental cavities, which might transform into a tooth infection.

If you are at risk of developing tooth infection, book an online consultation for tooth infection at GetCareMD.

Complications Associated With Tooth Infection

A tooth infection requires proper dental treatment. If the tooth abscess ruptures, it might relieve pressure and pain but should not be left untreated. The tooth infection can spread to your jaw and the neck region and cause further complications.
Moreover, an untreated tooth abscess can lead to sepsis, an acute infection that can spread throughout the body.

Strep Throat

Strep throat (pharyngitis) is a bacterial infection. It leads to patients developing a sore, painful throat, and the formation of small nodules in your throat, in addition to a cough. Can’t tell if you have strep throat? You can check the back of your throat in a mirror. Redness and/or white spots, indicate that you have strep throat and should reach out to us.

Sinus Infection

Also known as Sinusitis, sinus infections refer to swelling or inflammation of the tissue that lines the sinuses. When the sinuses are blocked, the germs and fluid in them can cause infections. Treatment leads to quick improvements in comfort and alleviates pain.

Schedule a consultation with our healthcare professionals to treat your infection.

Shingles

Also known as Herpes Zoster, shingles refers to a viral infection that causes a rash (usually on one side of the body), with associated nerve pain. The condition comes from the Varicella Zoster virus – the virus that also leads to chickenpox. Treatment aims to control the infection and reduce the pain and inflammation.

Seasonal Allergies

Seasonal allergies are also known as hay fever. They refer to allergy symptoms that occur at particular points in the year. The causes are typically the release of mold spores, as well as the release of pollen to fertilize other plants. The symptoms include sneezing, itching, congestion, and more.

To treat your allergies, schedule a consultation with our professionals.

Rashes & Itching

Rashes refer to any red eruption of the skin, leading to itchiness and irritation. Both rashes and irritations are symptoms of different conditions, such as allergies and eczema. Treatment typically involves antifungal and viral medication, topical ointments, and more.

Seeking an online consultation for pink eye? Trust the capable medical professionals of GetCareMD.
Learn more about the condition and find out how we can help:
The insides of our eyelids are lined with a thin, clear tissue known as the conjunctiva. It also lies over the white area (sclera) of our eyes.
Pink eye — also called conjunctivitis or pinkeye — is what happens when the conjunctiva becomes inflamed.
While adults can get it, it’s typically associated with children.
Even though it’s extremely contagious, it isn’t serious if caught and treated in time.
Protecting yourself from any long-term damages of pink eye is as easy as scheduling a pinkeye consultation online and following the doctor’s instructions.

Symptoms of Pink Eye

Common symptoms of pink eye can be observed in one or both eyes:

  • Itchiness
  • Redness
  • Thick discharge that can harden into a crust overnight and make it difficult to open your eyes in the morning
  • Burning sensation
  • Blurred vision
  • Increased light sensitivity

If you’re observing one or more of these symptoms, it’s best to opt for an online consultation for pinkeye so that you don’t need to see your eye doctor in person.

Causes of Pink Eye

Pink eye can be caused by a range of factors, which include:

  • Viruses
  • Bacteria
  • An allergic reaction
  • Parasites, fungi, and amoeba
  • Irritants, like shampoos, chlorine in swimming pools, and dirt

Certain sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) — such as gonorrhea and chlamydia — can also cause pink eye.

Pain Relief

Pain relief consultations typically begin with an attempt to narrow down the cause and kind of pain patients are experiencing. Pain comes in many forms, such as headaches, joint inflammation, menstrual cramps, fractures, and more. Treatment is tailored accordingly.

To alleviate your pain, schedule a consultation with us.
