Get Treatment for Your Allergic Reaction at Our Urgent Care Clinic in Saline, MI
We all make mistakes, and that adage applies to the human body as well as the mind. This is perhaps the best explanation for why harmless substances sometimes trigger allergic reactions when they’re inhaled, ingested, or touched. Your body’s immune system is critical to warding off serious viral and bacterial infections, but it sometimes misidentifies substances like pollen, peanuts, and poison ivy as threats. When that happens, your body makes antibodies to fight the perceived threat, and that can cause inflammation and a host of uncomfortable symptoms like sinus congestion, itchy eyes, skin rashes, and nausea.
Allergic reactions can be unpredictable and sometimes mimic the symptoms of other health conditions. Fortunately, adults and children in the Saline, Michigan, area can seek a diagnosis and treatment for many types of allergic reactions at Springfield Urgent Care. We’re open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, and we treat walk-in patients for a wide variety of non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries. Our wait times are short, and we also provide an online check-in service that will allow you to save your spot in line before you arrive.
Why Choose Us for Allergy Treatment?
Some of the most common allergic reactions—like hay fever—cause symptoms like sneezing, nasal congestion, and coughing, which could be signs of a respiratory infection. Food allergies can cause stomach pain and nausea—which are also symptoms of gastroenteritis and urinary tract infections. It’s important to get an accurate diagnosis so you can get an effective treatment plan. Springfield Urgent Care is staffed by experienced medical practitioners and equipped with an on-site lab to provide same-day testing so we can accurately diagnose allergic reactions and other health conditions. This allows us to prescribe the best treatment to help you feel better faster.
Are Allergic Reactions Ever Emergencies?
Severe allergic reactions can cause anaphylaxis, a dangerous condition that requires immediate emergency room care. You should call 911 if allergy symptoms come on suddenly and/or cause severe difficulty in breathing or swallowing, loss of consciousness, or intense abdominal pain and vomiting.
For less serious allergic reactions, you can feel confident seeking treatment at Springfield Urgent Care in Saline. Contact us today if you have questions.
