If you think you might have Valley Fever, visit your healthcare provider.  Since Valley Fever symptoms are similar to those of other illnesses, your provider may order a blood test or other tests, such as a chest x-ray, to help diagnose Valley Fever.

cocci diagnosis testing (CDC)Treatment is usually not necessary for mild infections, which often get better on their own.  All individuals with symptoms, however, should see a healthcare provider who can determine if treatment is needed.

If you are diagnosed with Valley Fever it is very important to follow instructions given by your healthcare provider about treatment, follow-up appointments, and testing.
