Minor Injuries: $89 - $109
You can get fast, expert care for a wide range of injuries at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens. With virtual visits and convenient locations across South Florida, we make it easy to see a healthcare provider when you need one.
Minor burns affect the first few layers of your skin and are painful. A first-degree burn affects the top layer of your skin (epidermis) and causes skin redness and swelling, such as a sunburn. A second-degree burn affects the top layer and the layer underneath (dermis) and causes redness, swelling, and blistering of the skin. If a burn is deeper and causes symptoms such as trouble breathing, shock, dizziness, or nausea, you should call 911 for emergency treatment.
When you need treatment for a minor burn, UHealth Clinic at Walgreens offers expert care. Our providers offer virtual appointments, or you can come into the clinic to see someone in person. We offer treatment to relieve pain and swelling and prevent infection – including tetanus shots. We may prescribe an antibiotic cream or other medicines, depending on the burn. You get guidance for treating your burn at home, including how to bandage it and relieve pain. We help you heal as quickly as possible.
Corneal (eye) abrasions
A corneal abrasion or scratched eye is a scratch on the clear, outer layer of your eye. It can happen if you get something in your eye, like dirt or sand, get hit or poked by something, or rub your eye too hard. Poorly fitting or dirty contact lenses can also scratch your eye.
You may see a scratch or spot of blood on the white of your eye, or you might notice an area of redness. It may be painful or feel like there's something in your eye and cause tears. Other symptoms can include light sensitivity, headache, or blurry vision. Eye scratches are common, and most heal on their own in a few days. But, it's important to see a healthcare provider to have it checked out.
You can get treatment for eye scratches at a UHealth Clinic at Walgreens near you, with same-day appointments at locations across South Florida. Our providers examine your eye and can prescribe eye drops or ointments to reduce swelling and prevent scarring. Your provider can also give you eye drops to relieve eye irritation and help you feel better. We let you know how long it should take to heal, how to improve healing, and what not to do – such as rubbing your eye or using redness-reducing eye drops. You get trusted advice from a team you can trust.
Splinters can be any type of material that gets under your skin – not just wood. They can be small pieces of plastic, glass, or metal. They also come from plants and animals, such as a spine from a cactus or sea urchin. Small splinters close to the surface of your skin may be easy to remove, but sometimes large or deep splinters are difficult to get out. They can break apart under your skin, or you may cause more damage trying to get them out.
When you need to see a healthcare provider to remove a splinter, UHealth Clinic at Walgreens is here for you. Our providers have the skill and the right instruments to take it out and clean the wound to prevent infection. Your provider may prescribe antibiotics if there’s an infection and give you a tetanus shot if needed. You can get personal attention and treatment from providers skilled in removing splinters in children and adults.
Sprains and strains
Sprains and strains are common injuries. Nearly everyone experiences one or both in their lifetime. Although some people may use the terms interchangeably, sprains and strains are different:
- A sprain is a stretched or torn ligament – ligaments connect two bones. It causes pain, swelling, and bruising. Sprained ankles are the most common type of sprain.
- A strain is a twisted, pulled, or torn muscle or tendon. Tendons connect muscles to bones. Strains cause pain, swelling, muscle spasms or weakness, and muscle cramping. Back muscle and hamstring (upper leg) muscle strains are the most common strains.
Whether it’s a sprain or a strain, you want it to stop hurting and heal as quickly as possible. You can get treatment for sprains and strains at a UHealth Clinic at Walgreens location. We offer same-day appointments – including evening appointments – and care at convenient locations throughout South Florida. We diagnose your injury and offer treatment to speed healing. You can depend on expert care from an experienced team.
