Treatment for Tick Bites in South Plainfield, NJ

The months between April and September are the most active months for ticks. It is also a time when our urgent care center sees many cases of tick removal and testing for tick-borne illnesses.  

At AFC Urgent Care South Plainfield, we provide treatment for tick bites as well as tick removal on a walk-in basis.

Between 3-30 days following the tick bite, some individuals may experience symptoms of tick-borne illnesses such as:

  • Bull’s Eye Pattern Rash
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness

  • Dizziness

You can reduce your risks of catching a tick-borne illness by:
