Get Treatment for Tick and Insect Bites at Our Walk-In Clinic in St. Clair Shores, MI
There’s nothing like a family outing at Blossom Heath Park or one of the other beautiful recreation areas near St. Clair Shores, Michigan. But humans aren’t the only ones that enjoy spending time in the great outdoors. Ticks, insects, wasps, and other bugs lurk in the grass and shrubs around hiking trails and woodsy areas. In fact, unwary individuals can get a tick or insect bite just by strolling around their yards, especially during the warmer months.
If you or your child has a worrisome tick or insect bite and you’re in the St. Clair Shores area, you can walk right into Springfield Urgent Care for expert treatment from caring and well-qualified medical practitioners. We’re open during extended hours every day of the week.
Why Seek Treatment for a Tick Bite?
Michigan is home to 20 different tick species, some of which can cause potentially serious illnesses, such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease. It’s important to inspect yourself for the presence of ticks after spending time outdoors. If you find that a tick has embedded itself in your skin, removing it properly can be tricky. At Springfield Urgent Care, we have the tools and the skills to thoroughly remove ticks and provide you with recommendations about what to do next. If you develop a rash, fever, or muscle aches within 30 days of removing a tick, make sure you seek medical treatment.
In addition to treating tick and insect bites, we also treat spider bites and wasp stings. Bug bites and stings can cause pain, severe itching, and a rash. It’s important to get relief from these symptoms because the urge to scratch can be irresistible, and that can lead to infection.
