Every year, thousands of Americans experience an insect sting or bug bite from an insect. A lot of the time, these bug bites and stings are easy to treat at home and disappear after a few days or weeks. But sometimes, bug bite and insect sting symptoms and reactions can be more serious and require timely medical attention. Hospital urgent care centers often require hours of waiting time before a doctor is available to consult with, which can be painful and inconvenient for patients. At AFC Urgent Care in Powdersville SC, we focus on providing patients with immediate and attentive urgent care services upon their arrival to our walk-in clinic. We are open every day of the week during flexible hours to better suit busy schedules, and welcome patients of all ages.
The most common symptoms of bug bites and insect stings can include swelling, redness, pain, or itchiness. In some more serious allergic reactions, difficulty breathing can occur, which is a life-threatening reaction and should be attended to by a hospital emergency room. For all less severe allergic reactions to bug bites or insect stings, AFC Urgent Care in Powdersville has you covered. Bug bites are not only a painful experience when an allergic reaction occurs, they can also be ways for insects to spread harmful diseases. For example, mosquitoes can transmit West Nile virus and ticks can spread Lyme disease. It is important to see a doctor if you have been in an area where these diseases are present and have a bug bite or sting from either insect.
