When Should I Take My Child to Urgent Care?

Fast Track Urgent Care treats the following pediatric issues:

  • Asthma – Asthma can cause episodes of coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and tightening of the chest. If your child experiences a sudden, severe asthma attack, call 911 or head to an emergency room immediately. If the symptoms are less serious but are still causing discomfort, visit Fast Track Urgent Care for treatment.
  • Common childhood illnesses – From chickenpox to RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) to measles, we can treat all childhood illnesses.
  • Ear infections – Ear infections can make your little one miserable. Fast Track’s doctors can diagnose ear infections and prescribe treatment, which you can pick up from our on-site pharmacies.
  • Fever – If you are worried about your child’s fever, call your child’s pediatrician. She or he may recommend that you bring your child to urgent care.
  • Minor burns – We treat minor burns with great care. Bring your child to Fast Track if you believe your child has suffered a second-degree burn or a first-degree burn that you are concerned about. Second-degree burns definitely require immediate medical attention.
  • Minor cuts and lacerations – If you suspect that your child’s wound requires stitches, you should come to a Fast Track Urgent Care location immediately. The risk of infection increases the longer a cut goes untreated. And if your child tetanus shot isn’t up to date, a booster is critical.
  • Possible broken bones or simple fractures – Not sure if a bone is broken? Bring your child to Fast Track for an x-ray.
  • Rashes and skin infections – A rash could be a reaction to an irritant or a signal of a larger problem. Find out at Fast Track.
  • Sprains and strains – Sprains need quick treatment so they don’t get more serious. Fast Track can diagnose you child’s sprain or strain and get her back on the road to healing.
  • Strep throat – If you suspect your child may have strep throat, bring him in right away. Fast Track’s doctors and clinicians can diagnose strep with a quick test and prescribe the appropriate treatment.
  • Vomiting and diarrhea – A troubled tummy is never a good time for your little one—or the rest of the household! At Fast Track, our doctors and clinicians can diagnose the illness and advise you on the best treatment for whatever is causing your child’s discomfort.
