A severely contagious respiratory illness, the flu is caused by the influenza virus. Symptoms include a sore throat, headache, muscle aches, fever, congestion, coughing, and in some cases, vomiting and diarrhea.
Strep throat is a bacterial infection of the throat and tonsils that causes symptoms such as a sore throat, fever, swollen lymph nodes, red or swollen tonsils, and sometimes abdominal pain and headache.
Short for mononucleosis, mono is a virus that causes symptoms that can last for several weeks, especially in children and teenagers. Symptoms include fever, sore throat, headache, swollen tonsils, swollen lymph nodes, rash, and a swollen spleen.
RSV stands for respiratory syncytial virus and it mainly affects children. It can cause bronchiolitis and pneumonia in children under the age of 1 if left untreated. The most common symptoms are a runny nose and a cough that lead to a fever and wheezing within 3 days.
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) attacks the T-cells, leaving the body incapable of fighting off disease and developing into acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Initially, most people who have HIV experience flu-like symptoms. If you are concerned that you may have contracted the HIV virus, it is important to know your status so you do not infect other people and can begin antiviral medication.
Why Get Tested?
If you have the flu or strep throat, it is important to come in for testing so that the correct medications can be prescribed and you can get well sooner. Mono should be tested for immediately since it can spread quickly in groups of teenagers and children. RSV is generally not dangerous in children over 6 weeks old, but if your child is younger than 6 weeks and is showing symptoms of RSV, they should be tested as soon as possible as it can be critical at that age. If you think that there is a possibility that you have been exposed to HIV, you should come in for testing right away to begin life-prolonging antiviral medications.
What to Expect
When you visit the iCare for any kind of illness testing, our trained team of medical practitioners will first ask questions about your medical history and perform a physical exam. Afterward, depending on your symptoms, they will perform an illness test. For the flu, strep, and RSV, this usually involves a cotton swab used to collect a sample from the nose or mouth. Mono is tested using a blood sample either from the fingertip or from a vein. HIV is tested using either a saliva sample or a blood sample. Since our facilities are equipped with the latest comprehensive and digital technology, laboratory results are available within 15 minutes, meaning you don’t have to sit through a long wait period before starting treatment.
