Ticks are everywhere, and some can carry diseases that can be extremely harmful to humans. The most common disease is Lyme disease. If left untreated, Lyme disease can cause debilitating and chronic symptoms. The medical providers at AFC Aurora Saddle Rock can remove any tick that is still in the skin and test for Lyme disease.
AFC Aurora Saddle Rock is open seven days a week. Our board-certified providers can test for Lyme disease on weekends, so patients never have to worry about care. Visit our walk-in center today for any urgent care service.
Ticks are pesky insects, and there is a knack for removing them once they bite you. If you don’t remove the entire head of the tick, it can still transfer diseases to you. If you’re trying to remove the tick at home, use a pair of tweezers and try to grab it from the base of the head. If you grab from the body, the head will detach since it burrows into the skin.
Removing ticks is not hard if you have done it before. However, if you are squeamish or are having trouble, visit our walk-in center as soon as you notice the tick.
As we’ve mentioned, some ticks carry diseases that cause harmful symptoms in humans- Lyme disease being one of the most common. Early symptoms of Lyme disease often occur within a month of being bit, and can include headache, fever, fatigue, and a skin rash. If you leave these symptoms untreated, it can cause facial palsy, intermittent pain, inflammation of the spinal cord or brain, and nerve pain.
Lyme disease can be treated with a series of antibiotics. The prescription typically lasts a month; however, symptoms may persist. There is no rhyme or reason as to why symptoms persist, it is considered an auto-immune response and differs from person to person.
Testing can be conducted in our center, thanks to our on-site lab. Results will be available within a few days, and your provider may recommend you come back for further testing if it’s inconclusive.
