Commonly Treated Conditions
Allergies
Allergy symptoms can vary, but patients typically experience Itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, itchy and runny nose, rashes, hives - a rash with raised red patches, and more.

Abdominal Pain
Other terms used to describe abdominal pain are stomachache, tummy ache, gut ache, and bellyache. Abdominal pain can be mild or severe and may come and go. Seek medical care if you can't move without causing more pain, or you can't sit still or find a comfortable position.

Cough
Your cough may be the result of a common cold, but if it continues for more than a few days with no signs of relief, you may want to see a doctor. A persistent cough can be a sign of something more serious.

Fever
Fever is the body's normal and healthy reaction to infection and other illnesses, both minor and serious. It helps the body fight infection. A sudden fever or very high temperature may indicate the need for medical advice, especially when a young child is involved.

Stuffy and Runny Nose
A stuffy or congested nose occurs when the tissues lining it become swollen. The swelling is due to inflamed blood vessels. The problem may also include nasal discharge or a runny nose. If excess mucus runs down the back of your throat (postnasal drip), it may cause a cough or a sore throat.

Sore Throat
A sore throat is pain, scratchiness or irritation of the throat that often worsens when you swallow. The most common cause of a sore throat is a viral infection, such as a cold or the flu. If you have a sudden, severe sore throat without coughing, sneezing or other cold symptoms, you could have strep throat and should seek medical care. Strep throat is a bacterial infection of the throat and tonsils.

Painful or difficult urination
Men and women of any age can experience painful urination. It is most commonly associated with urinary tract infections, which more often affect women than men.

Low Back Pain
Low back pain is caused by injury to a muscle (strain) or ligament (sprain). Common causes include improper lifting, poor posture, lack of regular exercise, fracture, ruptured disk or arthritis. Depending on the cause, low back pain can cause a range of symptoms. The pain may be dull or sharp. It may be in one small area or over a broad area. You may have muscle spasms. Low back pain can also cause leg symptoms, such as pain, numbness, or tingling.

Diarrhea
Often accompanied by abdominal cramping, diarrhea varies in severity and duration and is usually caused by a bacterial, viral or parasitic infection. When a high fever or dehydration symptoms are present, especially in children, contact a physician.

Eye Infections
Symptoms of eye infections may include redness, itching, swelling, discharge, pain or problems with vision. Treatment depends on the cause of the infection. Two common eye infections are conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye and stye. Pink eye is often due to an infection and it is very contagious. A stye is a bump on the eyelid that happens when bacteria from your skin gets into the hair follicle of an eyelash. Seek medical care to review treatments and to help ease any discomfort.

Joint Pain
Joint pain is common. Any damage to the joints from disease or injury can interfere with your movement and cause pain. Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, strains, sprains and other injuries.

Sprains
A sprain is a stretched or torn ligament. Ligaments are tissues that connect bones to a joint. Falling, twisting or getting hit can all cause a sprain. Ankle and wrist sprains are common. Symptoms include pain, swelling, bruising and being unable to move your joint.

Headache
Headaches can last less than an hour or continue for days. They can be a minor discomfort or a serious condition. Talk to a medical provider if they increase in frequency or last longer than usual. If you have extreme pain, go to a hospital or call 911.

Minor Skin Problems
There are many different kinds of rashes and skin conditions. Contact dermatitis is inflammation of the skin (rash) that may result when the skin is touched by irritants or substances that cause an allergic reaction. Contact dermatitis can occur from exposure to many different compounds found both in the home and at work. Also, skin rashes like eczema, hand foot and mouth and impetigo can be caused by infections, heat, allergens, immune system disorders and medications. Most aren't serious, but it’s important to check with a medical provider and get the right treatment if needed.
