In the summer months, everyone enjoys being outside. However, mosquitos are a nuisance during this time of the year. These pests tend to bite you while you are trying to enjoy the nice weather. Home remedies are usually enough to take care of the itchiness and sting. However, if you find yourself having a more severe reaction to a bite from a mosquito, come to AFC Urgent Care location in Easley today for prompt treatment. No appointment is needed, and we are available seven days a week.
Many people are not allergic to a mosquito bite and those who are, may not even realize it until they are bitten by this bug. A severe reaction to a bite is far more common in children than in adults. As time passes, you become more resistant to mosquito bites, and your body will have milder reactions to them.
A telltale sign that a mosquito has bitten you is an itchy red bump. Don’t mistake a bump as the actual bite from a mosquito. Your immune system’s reaction to the sticky saliva left behind by a mosquito is what causes your skin to itch and develop the bump. Are you unsure if you are allergic to a mosquito bite? Come to AFC Urgent Care Easley today for diagnosis and treatment. Knowing you are allergic can help you manage the symptoms and know what to do when you have a severe allergic reaction. Our doctors and medical professionals will also educate you to recognize these symptoms, so you can take immediate action.
