Staying Healthy This Season + More!
This time of year is filled with a million to-do’s and not nearly enough time to do them all! Do you feel me? From after-school sports to parties, rehearsals, and everything in between, I literally don’t have an extra minute to add anything to my plate!
So, when my son woke up with pink-eye for the first time in his life a few weeks back, I didn’t know what to do! First off, I had never experienced pink-eye before (on myself or my kids), so I really didn’t know how to handle it. Secondly, with two other kids to worry about, how was I supposed to fit in a doctor’s appointment? Oh, and did I mention we were planning an out of the country cruise too – so having pink-eye definitely wouldn’t fly!
Thankfully, I recently discovered Amwell and decided to give their at-home urgent care solution a shot. For those who don't know, Amwell is a mobile app that gives you access to healthcare any time from anywhere. With Doctors available 24/7, 365 days a year, you can get help with everything from pediatric and urgent care to breastfeeding support, dermatology and cardiology. It's great because you don't even need an appointment! Just sign in and have your visit. Best of all, there are no nasty waiting rooms and you don't have to get everyone else ready to just go and sit!
So, while I was working on packing our bags, I was quickly able to hop on a video call with a doctor and have them check out Kaston’s eyes, and just like that, we had our solution! Although very contagious, the doctor assured me that we could use over-the-counter homeopathic drops, although she also wrote a prescription just in case it got worse or the natural solution wasn’t working. Thankfully, his cleared up in a matter of days – although both his sisters ended up getting it too… Again, we were able to quickly hop on a call with Amwell and get it all sorted out so we happily headed off to our cruise with nothing but sunscreen and smiles!
I would 100% recommend Amwell for your 24/7 at-home resource for [the majority] of your urgent care needs! Not only is it super convenient, but the doctors are extremely knowledgeable and really do care about helping you and your family feel their best – as quickly as possible!
