For those times of year when your seasonal allergies are weighing you down, AFC Urgent Care Bedford has you covered. Visit us today for a diagnosis and the best treatment options to help you feel good all year round.
Seasonal allergies are reactions to irritants such as pollen, dust, pet dander, and mold. These irritants can cause symptoms such as:
Our board-certified physicians can make the best recommendations for treatment options based on your symptoms. Options can include immunotherapy, medicated ointments, or prescribed antihistamines.
The cause of seasonal allergies depends on the time of year. In Spring, trees such as birch, cedar, or chestnut create pollen that causes an allergic reaction in some people.
In Summer, grass can trigger patient’s allergies. This includes ryegrass and timothy grass and some weeds.
The fall season brings ragweed, and it’s pollen. Symptoms of ragweed allergies can cause severe allergic reactions.
In Winter, most outdoor seasonal allergies are dormant due to the cold temperature. However, spending more time indoors means allergic reactions to pet dander, dust, or mold.
At AFC Urgent Care Bedford, we treat seasonal allergy symptoms on a Walk-in basis. You can skip the hassle of trying to schedule a last-minute appointment with your overbooked primary care physician. Simply walk into our Urgent Care Center any day during the week between 8am-8pm, and you will be seen by one of our experienced providers.
Our walk-in clinic accepts most major Insurances as well as provides low-cost care for those without.

Do you have a temperature or general aches and pains? If so, you're likely dealing with a cold, not seasonal allergies. Either way, AFC can help.
Nasal steroid sprays, antihistamines, and decongestants are often used to treat seasonal allergies. While many of these can be purchased over the counter, some patients need prescription-strength allergy medicine.
We can help you try to identify your triggers when you visit our clinic. Our providers know the right questions to ask and can help you get relief quickly.
