Treating Tick Bites
When you come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care with a tick bite, we will effectively remove the tick and clean the bite area. If the tick has been attached to you for longer than 36 hours, we may prescribe a prophylactic medication to reduce the risk of Lyme disease. We’ll also send you home with information on the symptoms of Lyme disease to watch out for over the next few weeks and what to do if those symptoms show up.
Treating Lyme Disease
Lyme disease can present with a number of symptoms, including:
- A bull’s-eye rash around the bite area
- Muscle or joint pain
- Swollen lymph nodes
If you’re experiencing these symptoms after a tick bite, come to our urgent care center for a prompt diagnosis and treatment. We’ll likely conduct lab tests to confirm the disease—which we can complete on site for your convenience—and then prescribe an antibiotic regimen to clear up the infection.
