If all of your symptoms are in Group A and your temperature is below 101 degrees F, you most likely have a common cold or viral infection. You may want to try an over-the-counter cold relief medication; if no improvement and it has been more than 7-10 days since initial symptoms, make an appointment in Health Services by calling (414) 277-7333.

If your symptoms are in Group B, you should consider seeing a health care professional. Please call Health Services for an appointment at (414) 277-7333.
