We are in Navarette just outside of Logrono. I’m walking with my two sons 23 and 18. The older one has asthma and got a cold which exacerbates his asthma. He brought inhalers with him and we have a small amount of mucinex with us but not enough. We went to the pharmacy today and they said we would need a RX to get Sudafed or similar or Spain’s version of mucinex. Apparently it’s ant the discretion of the pharmacist. Anyone know the process of making a doctors appt. I talked to someone in Najare who said there is a 24 hour hospital there. But we are trying to decide what to do. Will online doctors work in Spain? We are considering taking a taxi back to Logrono to rest for a few more days let him get well but wondering if there might be resources here in Navarette. There is a health center here but it’s Friday afternoon. And if I understood the message right I think it closes at 3. Just wondering if there is anyone on the ground here that might know the area and have recommendations. Thanks
In Spain you want to go to the "Centro de Salud" (Helath center).
In Navarette there is a Centro de Salud.
This is the link to the map:
Centro de Salud de Navarrete is a hospital in La Rioja. Centro de Salud de Navarrete is situated nearby to Plaza de toros de Navarrete and Plaza del Coso.

I hope this helps.
I reread your post and I think it maybe a good sollution to taxi it back to Logrono as it is a larger city in the area and it will have more options for you medically as well as hostel/hotel and things to do.
Maybe the Camino is telling you to take a couple of rest days and recharge the batteries
I never used an online doctor so I have no experience with that, but at the Centro de Salud you will get examined and recieve treatment or prescriptions from a doctor very fast.
It depends a little if you are from Europe or abroad, but regardless you can ask for a letter from the doctor with the cost and have it reimbursed by your insurance without any troubles.
That is my experience.
