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.

First Aid Handbook: Skin Infection

Infections, unfortunately, come in all shapes, sizes, and in parts of the body. While the skin’s function is to protect your body from infections, it can sometimes become infected itself. Skin infections can be some of the most common and are usually very visible for all to see. Our Integrity Urgent Care team sees skin infections on patients on a regular basis and can help treat you.

UTIs in Children: Symptoms, Prevention, and Treatment

As painful as a urinary tract infection can be for an adult, imagine having to feel that discomfort as a child or to be a parent working to figure out why their child is in pain or showing symptoms of sickness. Many of you have probably been in that situation, seeing as 8% of girls and 2% of boys experience at least one UTI, according to Yale Medicine.

A urinary tract infection occurs when bacteria from outside the body enters the bladder or urethra and causes irritation or infection. It is more common in girls than boys due to differences in their anatomy. Many of the characteristics of UTIs are similar in adults.

This infection, fortunately, is easy to diagnose, with a urinalysis, which means Integrity Urgent Care can help provide you with relief and care, right away.
