First Aid Handbook: Fall Allergies
While spring allergies gets most of the press, many are no stranger to fall allergies, especially as we wonder if every sniff, cough, and sore throat is a sign of allergies or something else. Fall and winter allergies arise with heaters being kicked on, changes in the plants outside, and more time being spent inside causing more exposure to mites, dust, and pets. Integrity Urgent Care is here to help you with your fall allergies and any other issues that may pop up for you and your family.

First Aid Handbook: Lacerations
We all get lacerations at one time or another. In fact, lacerations may be one of the most common injuries in the world. While we may not recommend coming in for a paper cut that feels like a bigger issue than it is, if you cut yourself while preparing your next big feast or have a hole in your foot where you stepped on that rusty nail you meant to avoid, Integrity Urgent Care is open to help you clean and treat your lacerations and other wounds.

First Aid Handbook- Animal Bites
Whether it is a little kid who is getting too close to someone’s pet or a gardening adult who accidentally puts their hand too close to a wild animal, we sometimes encounter creatures who would rather we stay further away. Instincts take over and these animals will defend themselves by clawing, scratching, and sometimes biting. Integrity Urgent Care sees a fair number of animal bites in our patient rooms and has tips on what to do if this happens to you.

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.
