My daughter was diagnosed with the flu, and no pharmacy seemed to have the medicine she needed. The staff called around until they found a pharmacy with Tamiflu. Thank you so much!!! I really really appreciate the extra mile and will recommend Paramount to all my friends.

Minor burns can usually be treated at home, but moderately severe burns require a trip to an urgent care center. In the meantime, what you don’t do can be just as important as what you do. For instance, if the burn is an open wound, do not run water over it, as this introduces bacteria to the wound. If the skin is still intact, you can use cool water, but never use ice water or ice. Temperatures that are too cold can damage the tissue even more.
There is a widespread belief that people should apply butter to a burn. But in fact, this can contribute to infections. Plus, the urgent care doctor will have to remove the grease before treating the wound. Sometimes, a small blister forms over a burn injury. Never try to pop the blister, as this increases the risk of infections. Instead, protect the area with a bandage or as directed by your doctor.
That feeling of queasiness in your stomach is never a welcome surprise, but it doesn’t always mean that you’re getting sick. Beyond food poisoning and stomach flu, there are plenty of other causes of nausea and vomiting. Visit anurgent care center if your vomiting persists and you can’t keep fluids down, since this can easily lead to dehydration. However, if you have nausea and vomiting that appears to be unexplainable, a physical exam may be in order.
People with anxiety disorders, especially those who suffer from panic attacks, understand all too well that emotional stress causes physical symptoms. One of those symptoms can be nausea, which may occur with or without vomiting. Anxiety triggers the release of hormones, including adrenaline, which interferes with the normal functioning of the digestive system. Stress can also lead to muscle tension, which may affect the abdominal area.
People with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) routinely experience acid reflux, especially if they aren’t receiving treatment for it. The stomach and esophagus are separated by the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). Normally, this muscular tissue closes after you consume food or beverages. If the LES fails to work as it should, the stomach acid can re-enter the esophagus and travel upward. Some people experience this as nausea, and they may begin vomiting.
Have you ever felt as if theroom is spinning around you while you remain perfectly still? This unnerving sensation is called vertigo. It can be caused by inflammation in the inner ear. Some people experience repeated episodes of vertigo after suffering from head trauma. When an episode begins, it can feel as if you’re suddenly tilting or falling forward, even though you aren’t moving at all. These odd sensations can result in nausea and sometimes vomiting. It’s advisable to see a doctor to figure out what’s causing your vertigo. In the meantime, when an episode begins, you may find it helpful to:
- Keep your head level and stare straight ahead.
- Grab on to something, even though you aren’t moving.
- Sit straight down on the floor if you think you might lose your balance and fall.

If you do get sick, and you’re at a high risk of severe flu complications, you can visit a walk-in clinic to ask about antiviral medications. Otherwise, stay at home, get plenty of rest, and enjoy some steaming hot chicken soup.
When you watch the accompanying video, you’ll hear about the science behind the benefits of chicken soup. The hot, steaming broth eases congestion and makes the mucus flow, which aids in the removal of the flu virus from your nasal passages. The broth is also helpful for preventing dehydration, which is more likely to develop in patients with the flu. Plus, the chicken gives your body some protein, which supports your immune system.
