Insect bites, burns and stings that lead to an allergic reaction or dangerous illness aren’t something to mess around with. For any bite that you don’t feel comfortable treating at home but isn’t an allergic reaction, urgent care is the perfect solution. Our team of knowledgeable medical professionals can evaluate the bite and provide prescriptions for pain and itch relief, decreasing swelling, and preventing complications.
If you have experienced a mild or severe burn, bite or sting, stop by one of our Preferred Urgent Care facilities to have our medical team evaluate and treat it.
Insects That May Cause Allergic Reaction:
- Biting flies
- Paper wasps
- Fire ants
Symptoms of Mild Bites or Stings
- Minor swelling
- Soreness or pain
- Redness with itching or burning
Symptoms of Severe Bites or Stings
- Trouble breathing or swallowing
- Swelling of the lips, tongue and throat
- Nausea or vomiting

- Dizziness or loss of consciousness
- Muscle spasms
- Increased or irregular heartbeat
When Should I Go to Urgent Care for Treatment?
Mild and severe bites, burns, and stings should always receive immediate medical attention. Preferred Urgent Care conveniently has two locations which are open seven days a week. In the meantime, refrain from scratching which can lead to infection. To reduce pain and swelling, apply a cold pack or cloth filled with ice. Because individuals react differently to insect bites when they are allergic, it is important to keep an eye on your symptoms and contact a medical professional sooner rather than later.
Walk-ins are always welcome at Preferred Urgent Care, but if you'd like to schedule an appointment you can call us at (281) 984-6735.
