Allergic Reaction Treatment Available at Our Walk-In Clinic Near Hamburg, MI
The world is full of bacteria, viruses, and other invisible, disease-causing microorganisms, and your body’s immune system provides a defense against them that’s critical to ensuring your good health. However, your immune system can sometimes be a little too zealous, going into attack mode when you inhale, eat, or touch certain harmless substances. This response is known as an allergic reaction, and it can manifest itself in the form of itchy, watery eyes, breathing problems, nausea, or hives.
If you’re in the Hamburg, Michigan, area and you or your child is experiencing a non-life-threatening allergic reaction, you can get allergy treatment fast at Springfield Urgent Care’s Hamburg location. We treat walk-in patients of all ages from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, including weekends. Our wait times are short, our rates are affordable, and we accept many health insurance plans, which makes our urgent care clinic a more convenient and affordable alternative to the emergency room when you don’t need emergency medical treatment.
When to Visit Our Urgent Care Clinic for an Allergy
Some allergic reactions are so severe that you should call 911 or head to the emergency room right away. Anaphylactic shock is a type of life-threatening allergic reaction that is often characterized by chest tightness, severe nausea, inability to breathe, and feeling like you’re going to faint. Severe allergic reactions that come on suddenly are also best evaluated at the ER.
For less severe allergies, you’ll be in good hands with the highly trained and compassionate medical practitioners at Springfield Urgent Care’s Hamburg location. You can visit us for treatment of:
- Seasonal allergies, such as adverse reactions to pollen
- Poison ivy rash and other skin rashes
- Food allergies
Our walk-in clinic is also equipped with an on-site testing lab, which means we’re able to provide testing for many infections and other health conditions that can cause symptoms that are similar to an allergic reaction. Our on-site testing capabilities allow our staff to provide accurate diagnoses and treatment plans that make patients more comfortable and speed their recovery.
