Frequently Asked Questions

Can an online doctor write a prescription?

Yes, online doctors can provide you with a prescription for all medications they deem beneficial to your health, that are not classified as controlled substances.

Do I have a cold or the flu?

The flu and cold have similar symptoms so it can be tricky to tell which you’re dealing with. Generally, the flu will come on faster than a cold. The flu is also frequently accompanied by a fever, body aches, and dry cough which are typically not associated with the common cold.

How long will my cold last?

The common cold typically lasts 2 to 10 days. The more rest you get, the faster your cold will go away. You can also use home-remedies, over-the-counter, and prescription strength medication to help with symptom management. The first symptom to typically show up is a sore throat or runny nose.

How do you make a cold go away fast?

If you have a cold it’s important to stay hydrated. Drink lots of water and herbal tea to help your body fight off the cold. Adequate rest can also help you get over a cold. A doctor may also be able to prescribe you prescription medication to help ease your symptoms.

The fastest way to meet with a doctor when you have a cold is to book an online appointment with a PlushCare doctor. Our doctors can provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan so you can get healthy!

Should I take antibiotics for a cold?

No, you should not take antibiotics for a cold. The common cold is caused by a virus, and antibiotics only treat bacterial infections. Researchers conclude that there is no benefit from taking antibiotics to treat a common cold. In the very rare case that a bacterial infection develops due to a cold, antibiotics can be considered as a treatment option.

    DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!

    Wow. Wow. Wow. This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor. He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins. Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day. I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.

    I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
