Tick Bite Treatment in Bridgeport, CT
The months between April and September are the most active months for ticks, which is also a time where our urgent care center sees many cases of tick removal and tick-borne illnesses. At AFC Urgent Care Bridgeport, we provide tick removal and tick bite treatment on a walk-in basis, so you never need an appointment to be seen by one of our physicians.
Between 3-30 days following the tick bite, some individuals experience tick-borne illness symptoms such as:
- Bull’s Eye Pattern Rash
Our urgent care center can evaluate and treat your symptoms seven days a week with convenient night and weekend hours. We also accept most major health insurances as well as provide low-cost care for those without.
You can reduce your risk of catching a tick-borne illness by:
- Avoiding wooded and bushy areas
- Wearing protective clothing for outdoor activities
- Conducing a full-body check upon returning indoors
- Showering after outdoor activities
