Tick Bite Treatment for Individuals in Glastonbury, CT

Our urgent care center is open seven days per week with extended hours and you never need an appointment.

Tick Bites & Lyme Disease
Some ticks can transmit Lyme disease, an infectious condition caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia mayonii. Common early symptoms of Lyme disease include a bull’s-eye rash, fever, chills, swollen lymph nodes, body aches, fatigue, headache, and neck stiffness. If left untreated, Lyme disease can later cause joint pain, rashes on other areas of the body, and neurological problems such as limb numbness and impaired muscle movement.
Thankfully, though, Lyme disease can typically be treated with antibiotics and most patients fully recover from their symptoms when it’s caught early.
