Can a tick bite be treated online?
In many cases, tick bites do not cause symptoms that require medical attention. However, if you are experiencing the signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction (like redness, itching, and skin irritation) or a tick-borne illness (like fever, nausea, and headaches), it is recommended that you talk to a health care provider.
Sesame offers convenient and affordable online doctor visits with licensed health providers across the country. If you are experiencing the signs and symptoms of a tick bite reaction, book a video visit with a health care provider to discuss your condition and possible treatment options.
Online doctor visits can be conducted in the comfort and privacy of your own home. During your visit, you will be asked about your symptoms and health history. You may be asked to undergo lab testing for a definitive diagnosis. If testing is required, Sesame will reach out to you about how to schedule this test.
If your doctor determines that you have a tick-borne illness, they will discuss a treatment plan with you. This may include prescription medication. If appropriate, your doctor can prescribe medication through Sesame. Depending on the medication, you can have your prescription delivered to your home or ready for same-day pickup at a pharmacy of your choice. Book a visit today to get started on treatment right away.
