When should I take antibiotics for an infected insect bite?

Only take medicines exactly as directed. A clinician will determine if antibiotics are necessary based on the severity and presentation of your infected bite. Don’t self-medicate with antibiotics. Visit Touchwood Pharmacy Northolt for the Pharmacy First Infected Insect Bite service to have your bites looked at by our qualified pharmacists.

Do I need an appointment for the Pharmacy First service at Touchwood Pharmacy Northolt (UB5)?

Appointments are not always necessary. But before you trek across Uxbridge to have your infected insect bites looked at, call ahead to check with staff at our Northolt branch about waiting times or to secure a specific spot. Nevertheless, walk-ins are often able to be accommodated.
