The symptoms of insect bites or stings vary depending on the severity of the body’s reaction to the insect’s venom. Most reactions are mild, with an annoying itch or a stinging sensation and slight swelling. Bites or stings that are more severe should receive immediate medical treatment.
Come in to Makana North Shore Urgent Care if you experience painful reactions to a bug bite or sting! In some cases, an extreme reaction, especially with children, may necessitate a 911 call or emergency room visit.
Ear infections or earaches can result from a variety of causes, but the most common factors include water getting stuck in your ear canal, sinus disease, the common cold, inflamed tonsils, a pharynx infection, impacted teeth, and inflamed nasal tissue. Also, when the inner ear becomes damaged by the insertion of a foreign object, this can cause earaches.
If you have a severe cold or respiratory infection, Eustachian tubes inside the ear become blocked with mucus from the virus. Don’t ignore any of the symptoms! Visit us at Makana North Shore Urgent Care for diagnosis and ear infection treatment as soon as possible.
Most Common Symptoms Associated with Ear Infections or Earaches Include:
Eye infections come in three forms: bacterial, viral, and fungal. Because the symptoms are similar for all, it’s often difficult to figure out the cause, which is why self-diagnosing can be so dangerous. Without proper treatment, eye infections can get worse quickly and lead to thousands of dollars in emergency bills.
Even the slightest of these symptoms can sometimes be very serious, so here’s a breakdown of what an eye infection looks like and when you should see a provider urgently. Having just one or two of these symptoms doesn’t always indicate the presence of an infection, but if you notice more than one of them or if they get worse as the days go by, it might be time to call our Princeville urgent care clinic.
Serious Eye Infection Symptoms
Swollen eyes or in the area around the eyes
Extreme light sensitivity
Feeling of a foreign object in the eye
Medium Eye Infection Symptoms
See your provider if you experience more of these at once:
Watery or dry eyes (that are different from how your eyes usually feel)
Warts will most often grow under the skin on hands and feet from a virus known as human papillomavirus (HPV). The growth may cause a large bump to appear which may be itchy or unsightly. While not all warts are painful, they can easily spread from one host to another by sharing towels, sandals, or other personal goods.
Visit us to remove a wart using cryotherapy and help prevent spreading it. Or stop by if you experience other painful skin tags.
