Lyme Disease Treatment

Lyme Disease at Urgent Care & Walk-In Clinic in Downingtown, PA

During the summer months, there is nothing better than getting out and about with your family. However, this does mean that you should be aware of some of the bugs that can be found outside. Not only this, but you need to know of the issues that could occur when bitten by a bug

Lyme Disease is just such an issue. It is caused by tick bites and can be contracted by all ages. Ticks are small, brown insects that can be found in moist areas such as tall grass or piles of leaves.

Here at AFC Urgent Care Downingtown, we have medical professionals who are experienced in providing diagnosis and treatment for not only Lyme Disease but tick bites in general.

Our doctors are fully board certified and on hand to provide your family with speedy, affordable, and high-quality medical care. To help you to identify whether or not you may have been affected by Lyme Disease, we have put together a guide so you can learn more about this disease.

Early stages of Lyme Disease

Within the first month of a tick bite some of the early symptoms of Lyme Disease can develop. This includes:

  • A red rash that is expanding
  • A fever
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Headaches

You may also find you have some wider symptoms, especially if it has been a few weeks since the bite and you have not received treatment. These symptoms include:

  • Bell’s Palsy
  • Severe headaches
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling and pain in the joints
  • Shooting pains
  • Heart palpitations

Late stages of Lyme Disease

If your Lyme Disease is not diagnosed and left untreated, then you may find that months and even years after the bite you will still suffer a variety of different symptoms.

Untreated Lyme Disease can leave you with:

  • Severe joint pain and swelling, particularly in the knees
  • Tingling hands
  • Memory issues

Don’t delay being checked out

Lyme Disease can be a long-term and severe illness. This is why it is vital that you are checked over by a doctor as soon as you have been bitten by a tick. Our Downingtown Urgent Care Center is the ideal place to come if you find a tick bite. We offer an appointment-free approach to care, allowing patients to walk in and see a medical professional. Our medical team can save you time and make sure that your tick bite is treated properly.
