Head lice

Head lice – words that every parent dreads. That’s because head lice are contagious. Children most often get them, and they’re passed easily between kids. They can spread to everyone in the family, and they don’t go away without treatment. Head lice are tiny insects that feed on blood and live on the scalp and hair. They don’t carry disease, and they’re not caused by an unclean home or bad personal hygiene. They spread easily among kids because there’s so much close contact at daycare centers, school, and during play.

Common symptoms of head lice are an itchy scalp, neck, and ears. It's possible to see them, but they’re hard to spot. They're tiny, gray, and move quickly.

You can get fast, convenient head lice treatment at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens. Our providers examine your child and develop a treatment plan to get rid of the head lice as quickly as possible. We also offer guidance for cleaning infested items and stopping the infestation from spreading in your home or to others. You can count on us to help you get through this.


Hives are red, itchy, painful welts caused by a skin reaction. They’re called chronic hives if they appear for several weeks and come back frequently. It’s not always clear what causes hives, but they can be caused by medicines, particular foods, alcoholic beverages, sun exposure, stress, heat or cold, bugs or parasites, and other triggers. They’re extremely uncomfortable and can keep you up at night.

When you have hives, you want relief right away. You can get fast, convenient treatment for hives at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens – with same-day and evening appointments at any of our South Florida locations.

Impetigo is a very contagious skin infection in babies and children that's caused by bacteria. It causes red sores around your child's nose and mouth and on their hands and feet, but they can spread to other areas of the body. After a week, the sores break open, ooze, and form a scab. Usually, the sores are mildly itchy and painful.

If you notice these symptoms, keep your child home from school or daycare until they can get treatment – this can stop it from spreading to others. The bacteria can spread to others who come into contact with an infected child’s sores or their clothes, bedsheets, towels, or toys.

You can get fast, convenient treatment for impetigo at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens. We offer same-day and evening appointments at locations across South Florida. Impetigo is easily treated with a prescription cream or ointment. Your provider will make sure you know how to manage symptoms and prevent spreading and when it’s safe for your child to return to school or daycare.

Mouth and cold sores

Cold sores, also called fever blisters, are common – but they’re uncomfortable and unsightly. They’re small blisters that most often form on and around your lips, but they can form around your nose, on your cheeks, or in your mouth. They itch at first, form a blister, break open, and form a scab that lasts several days. It takes a few weeks for them to heal completely.

A virus causes cold sores – most often herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and less commonly herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). They spread easily through close contact, including kissing and sexual contact. Kids 5 and younger can get mouth sores, but these aren’t caused by the herpes simplex virus. Although there’s no cure for cold sores, treatment can help manage outbreaks, speed healing, and may even reduce future outbreaks.

When you need treatment for cold sores, UHealth Clinic at Walgreens has you covered. You can get same-day and evening appointments at locations throughout South Florida – on your schedule. Your provider will give you an antiviral prescription to boost healing and make sure you know how to prevent spreading the virus.

Scabies is a skin condition that's caused by a tiny mite that tunnels under your skin, creating red, itchy bumps. It’s usually very itchy, and it's often worse at night. It can affect any part of your body, but older kids and adults typically notice bumps between fingers or on their arms, buttocks, knees, and soles of the feet. It's also common around the armpits, waist, breasts, and male genitals. Infants usually get scabies on their scalp, palms, or soles of their feet.
