Sunburns are a common occurrence throughout the summers in Massachusetts. If you aren’t careful, you can end up with a painful burn that can sometimes cause a fever and blisters on the skin.

At AFC Urgent Care Methuen, we want you to enjoy your summer as much as possible. That is why we provide walk-in sunburn treatment to all patients who need it. We can also make the best recommendations for you to avoid any sunburns in the future.

  • Lack of protective sunscreen or clothing
  • Lighter skin pigmentation

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • Why choose AFC for Urgent Care?

    With state-of-the-art centers and a professional medical team, AFC provides on-site X-rays, labs, procedures, and more!

  • What's the difference between AFC Urgent Care and emergency room services?

    Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
