Walk-In Insect Bite Treatment in Silver Spring, MD
If a painful insect bite has left you seeking treatment for you or your child, Fast Track Urgent Care is here to help. Our fully equipped urgent care centers in Silver Spring and Kensington, Maryland, cater to patients of all ages with a wide array of non-life-threatening health concerns, including bites and stings from insects like mosquitos, wasps, bees, fire ants, chiggers, fleas, ticks, and spiders.
Many insect bites cause mild redness, itching, and discomfort that can be managed at home with anti-itch creams, cold compresses, and a little bit of patience as the bite heals. However, Fast Track Urgent Care’s physicians and other experienced medical practitioners can treat bites with symptoms that are especially uncomfortable or long-lasting. Our team can also remove ticks and stingers, as well as provide advice on how to protect yourself in the future.
