First Aid Handbook: Chickenpox
It used to be that everyone had chickenpox and could tell a story of how they caught it, how their parents tried to prevent them from scratching their sores, and the inevitable scars left from dealing with the virus. Today, that has largely changed, but chickenpox does occur from time to time. Integrity Urgent Care can help you know what to be on the lookout for, particularly when you have small children who may not be fully immunized yet.

First Aid Handbook: Cellulitis
We may not always admit it, but we are always examining our skin for the occasional bump, scrape, or rash that may appear. As our largest and most visible organ, our skin does a lot and takes on a lot to keep the rest of our body safe. As we examine, squeeze, and pick, we may notice issues that are more unusual, like cellulitis. If you aren’t sure what cellulitis is or how to best treat it, the team at Integrity Urgent Care can help.
