If you are experiencing difficulties in breathing, uncontrolled bleeding, or chest pain unrelated to coughing, please call 9-1-1 immediately or seek care at an Emergency facility.
URGENT CARE: ABSCESS TREATMENT
An abscess is a painful mass on the skin typically caused by an infection. The skin around the mass is usually red in color and tender to the touch. Abscesses can be located anywhere on the body and are filled with pus (from the accumulation of bacteria and debris). Abscesses can be caused by an ingrown hair, as well as minor tears and trauma. When bacteria enters the site of the injured skin, the area can become infected and result in an abscess, which will most likely require draining.
URGENT CARE: Migraines
A migraine is an excruciating headache that is accompanied by symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, blurred vision, and sensitivity to sounds, lights, and smell. Migraines can be caused by a variety of factors, and can come on suddenly and last hours or days. Migraines commonly require medical treatment before subsiding.
URGENT CARE: TREATMENT FOR BLEEDING
Bleeding unexpectedly or heavily from an accident, an injury, an animal bite, or pregnancy can be concerning and may require medical attention. For urgent matters involving bleeding, University Urgent Care is equipped to provide time-efficient care.
URGENT CARE: INFECTION TREATMENT
Wound infection can become severe if not treated. Infections begin with tenderness and redness around the wound. Next, streaks of red, pus, and drainage may begin to appear. The infected area will feel hot to the touch and you may begin to experience a fever and flu-like symptoms. Suspected wound infections should always be treated at the earliest stages possible.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING AN URGENT CARE VISIT?
