At Central Illinois Urgent Care, we specialize in allergy treatment in the Effingham, Taylorville, and Litchfield areas. If you are struggling with seasonal allergies and need help identifying the best treatment plan to manage your symptoms, stop by our conveniently located urgent care center and meet with a highly trained member of our team. Whether your nose has been running for a week and you’re tired of it or you woke up feeling under the weather and need to talk to a medical professional about your options, we’re here for you.
When it comes to allergy treatment, the first thing to remember is that if you are having an allergic reaction and feel your lips swelling or your throat closing, call 911 or get yourself to the local emergency room immediately. Anaphylaxis is a serious medical condition and you require immediate attention. However, if you are struggling with seasonal allergies like hay fever or you have a mild reaction to food or another stimuli, the allergy treatment that we offer in Effingham, Taylorville, and Litchfield, is appropriate. In only about an hour we can have you in and out the door and no prior appointment is necessary, although we do offer our ZipPASS system if you know exactly when you’ll be visiting our state-of-the-art urgent care facility and wish to secure your spot in line.
While allergy treatment options vary depending on the patient, a few treatments our team may recommend include:
- The use of over-the-counter anti-histamines
- Controlled medications that feature pseudoephedrine
- Steroidal nasal sprays
- Bed rest
- The consumption of plenty of fluids
- Methods for avoiding common allergens
- And other similar options
If you are tired of dealing with congestion, a runny nose, a persistent pressure headache, or any of the other common symptoms of allergies, stop by Central Illinois Urgent Care and learn more about your options. We maintain extended business hours and are open seven days a week for your convenience. We even have a selection of medications available on site, potentially saving you a trip to the pharmacy on your way home.
