Get Treatment For Acne

Acne is a common skin condition that affects both men and women. Characterized by clogged or blocked pores, acne can manifest as anything from small pimples to deep cysts and nodules. It can cause stress due to its physical appearance and emotional distress as some individuals can struggle to fit in or feel accepted by their peers. Seeking a trusted source of help is one way to find relief. At Longridge Travel Health Clinic, our pharmacists can provide treatment for acne such as topical gels or creams that are formulated specifically for this purpose. Get in touch today to speak to someone about your acne concerns and start treatment.

Shingles is a condition caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. After someone recovers from chickenpox, the virus remains dormant in the body and can be reactivated to cause an outbreak of shingles later in life. Symptoms include a localized pain or itching sensation on one side of the body; these are usually accompanied by a blister-like rash which may spread over several days largely limited to one side of the body. We can provide a vaccine (Zostavax) to help prevent shingles

Cold Sores

Suitable for ages 2+

Cold sores are skin lesions that are caused by the herpes simplex virus. They cause small, red and painful blisters to form around the face, mouth, and nose area. While there is no cure for cold sores, research has shown that proper treatment can help reduce healing time and alleviate symptoms. We can provide Aciclovir cream, suspension, or tablets to help treat the cold sore.

Fungal Infections

Suitable for ages 1+

Many people suffer from non-severe, non-extensive fungal infections of the skin, which usually cause redness, itchiness and flaking. We are able to prescribe Miconazole and Daktacort cream that can help reduce the irritation of the infection and promote healing. With treatment, somebody who suffers from these common conditions can resume their everyday activities again without worrying about flare-ups

Hives, also known as urticaria, are itchy skin rashes that appear in raised patches on the surface of the skin. Generally caused by an allergic reaction to certain substances, hives usually dissipate within a few hours – however, in some cases they can linger for a few days or even weeks. We can provide medication for those suffering from chronic urticaria.

Vaccinate Against Chicken Pox

Suitable for ages 1+

Chickenpox is an extremely contagious virus caused by the varicella-zoster virus. It can cause an itchy, uncomfortable rash with tiny fluid-filled blisters that eventually burst and scab over. Fortunately, we now have a vaccine to help reduce the risk of contracting chickenpox for those who are especially vulnerable. The two main ways to prevent chickenpox are getting vaccinated, or developing immunity naturally by having already had the infection. Vaccination is the most reliable method, as those who have had chickenpox before can still get it again, especially in later adulthood.

The proof is in our reviews

I wanted to use a testing service within the Preston area in case we needed to visit the clinic for any testing pre or post our travel to Portugal. As it turned out, that wasn’t necessary, we did all testing remotely. This amazing company went above and beyond in getting us tested at Liverpool airport on a Sunday evening so that we made our flight.
A very personal service, giving clear instructions, prompt responses to questions and making a complex process for travel relatively simple. Thank you, highly recommended!

My partner and I purchased testing kits to take with us on our recent holiday to Spain we ordered them online and they arrived the next day.
The instructions were easy to follow and we received our certificates via email straightaway when we did the test in Spain.
We also had excellent advice via the chat line before our holiday and all our questions were answered.
The day 2 test which we chose to do in the clinic (if you choose you can do this at home also ) was also very straightforward and carried out by a very pleasant young man!
An excellent service we would highly recommend Longridge Travel Health Clinic!.

Great friendly service. We picked up our fit-to-travel tests from the clinic and bought them to France. Sent across the videos and photos first thing this morning and it must have only been an hour or so before our fit to fly certificates were emailed back. We also have our Day 2 tests booked with the clinic. Very friendly and helpful. Will definitely use again if required. Highly recommend them.

This is the second occasion we have used the services of Longridge and both in times of changing rules. They refunded where appropriate without our asking. As a company, it really is the best and their representative, Lauren, is so polite, reliable and speedy.
