Bug Bites and Stings

Typically bug bites or stings can be treated in our urgent care. When you come into iCare, your visit will begin with a physical exam and a medical history interview. One of our medical practitioners will ask you questions about your rash or insect bites to get a better understanding of your condition. Further testing or procedures may be required to treat your skin injury.

Treatment of bug bites and stings

Treatment often includes, cleaning the site, removal of stingers, application of ointments and bandage as necessary. Pesky bug bites can pose medical problems if you are allergic to the bug, if it carries a disease, if the bite gets infected, or if the bug is poisonous you may need bug bite treatment. If you begin experiencing wheezing, hives, nausea and vomiting, intense sneezing, difficulty swallowing, chest tightness, itching and swelling of the face, or difficulty breathing, you should seek treatment at iCare in Frisco or Fort Worth, as you may be experiencing an allergic reaction.

If redness or swelling continues for more than 72 hours and you develop a fever, you should seek medical care.
