Bug bites are one of the most common presenting complaints amongst patients at urgent care centers. Some are relatively harmless, while others can lead to pain, redness, itching, stinging, and swelling. Rarely, serious complications, including anaphylaxis, can occur. In order to provide proper treatment, healthcare professionals in the urgent care setting must be aware of current recommendations on diagnostic work up, triage, and treatment for patients presenting with bug bites.
