Treatment for Tick Bites in South Plainfield, NJ

The months between April and September are the most active months for ticks. It is also a time when our Urgent Care Center sees many cases of tick removal and testing for tick-borne illnesses.

At AFC Urgent Care South Plainfield, we provide treatment for tick bites as well as tick removal on a walk-in basis.

Between 3-30 days following the tick bite, some individuals may experience symptoms of tick-borne illnesses such as:

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

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

  • Wearing protective clothing for outdoor activities
  • Walking in the center of trails
  • Conducting a full-body check upon returning indoors
  • Showering after outdoor activities

Our Walk-In Clinic can test your tick-borne symptoms for Lyme disease as well as remove ticks that have latched onto the skin. You can visit us any day during the week, including our convenient evening and weekend hours of M-F 8-8 and Sat-Sun 8-5. We accept most major health insurances as well as provide cost-effective care for those without coverage.

For more information about tick removals or treatment for tick-borne illnesses, please call to speak with one of our medical professionals at (908) 222-3500.
