Summer Health

Get Summer Healthy, Stay Summer Healthy

We tend to think of summer as a generally healthy time of year when, of course, the living is easy. And while this may be true enough when it comes to instances of the common cold and flu, the long, hot days of spring and summer come with their own set of health and safety concerns.

Find all the resources you need to get your family ready for a summer filled with fun in the sun, and less time in an urgent care waiting room.

Allergies, Hay Fever & Asthma

While it may be pretty, many people pay for the seasonal beauty of blooms with itchy eyes and runny noses. Allergies are common as soon as spring hits and those flowers start to open up. Depending on the year, pollen can wreak havoc for some people. At NextCare, you can get a leg up on the season with quick care for all kinds of respiratory allergies, reactions, and more.

Bug Bites & Stings

It’s almost a summer rite of passage. More time outdoors comes with more and more bug bites, stings, and reactions to abundant levels of insects. For both adults and children, this can be a source of a lot of discomfort, from the backyard barbecue to the beach.

Practicing safe sun exposure is one of the best pieces of advice we can offer during the summer. Even if you think you won’t be out long, or if you promise to stay in the shade, a sunscreen cream or spray can prevent your best intentions from turning into an actual problem.

Tetanus Shots

More outdoor play and longer days often mean a lot of fun exploring, and it’s no surprise that many incidents of injuries and lacerations are the result of adventuring in nicer weather. From rusted nails to old fencing, hazards seem to come out to play during the summer months, as well.
