Non-Emergency Allergic Reactions Treated at Our Walk-In Clinic in White Lake, MI
An allergic reaction occurs when your body mistakenly identifies a substance that you’ve inhaled, ingested, or touched as harmful and initiates an inflammatory response to get rid of it. Although usually not life-threatening, allergic reactions can inflict a great deal of misery and sometimes cause symptoms that mimic those of infectious diseases, like influenza or gastroenteritis. If you’re in the White Lake, Michigan, area and need allergy treatment to feel better faster, or you’d like testing to rule out the flu or COVID-19, you can turn to Springfield Urgent Care.
We’re open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and we treat walk-in patients of all ages for a wide variety of non-life-threatening illnesses, including allergic reactions and allergy-induced asthma. Our wait times are short, and we also offer an online check-in system so you can book a time for your visit if you wish.
What Are Some Common Allergy Symptoms?
The most common allergic reactions we treat affect the respiratory system. They’re caused by breathing in pollen, pet dander, dust, or mold spores. Typical symptoms include:
- Sneezing and coughing
- A scratchy throat
- Itchy eyes
- A runny or stuffy nose
Food allergies are also common and may cause symptoms such as:
- Abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting
- Wheezing and nasal congestion
- Swelling of the face, throat, tongue, or lips
- Tingling or itching in the mouth
- Hives or itchy skin
People can also have allergic reactions to cleaning agents, certain medications, and poison ivy. The highly qualified medical practitioners at Springfield Urgent Care can evaluate your symptoms and, in some cases, prescribe medication to help you recover quickly. We also treat bee and wasp stings, but these sometimes cause severe allergic reactions that require emergency room care. You should call 911 or go to the ER if someone you’re with has dizziness, severe numbness, difficulty breathing, or lack of consciousness.
