Tick Bite Treatment

Tick Bite Treatment in Marlborough, MA

With April and September being the most popular months for outdoor activities for hiking and camping, these months are also an active time for ticks, tick bites, and tick-borne illnesses.

At AFC Urgent Care Marlborough, we can remove ticks latched onto the skin as well as detect tick-borne illnesses on a walk-in basis.

If you’ve come into contact with a tick, please visit our urgent care center if you’re experiencing symptoms such as:

  • Bull’s Eye Pattern Rash
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

You can reduce your risks of getting bitten by a tick or catching a tick-borne illness by:

  • Avoiding wooded and bushy areas with high-grass
  • Walking in the center of trails
  • Wearing protective clothing for outdoor activities
  • Conducting a full-body tick check, and shower after outdoor activities

Our walk-in urgent care center evaluates symptoms seven days a week – no appointment necessary.  We offer convenient night and weekend hours to provide you with the care you need when it’s convenient for you!  We accept most major health insurances as well as provide low-cost care for those without.
