Central Illinois Urgent Care

Allergy Treatment

At Central Illinois Urgent Care, we specialize in allergy treatment in the Effingham, Taylorville, and Litchfield areas. If you are struggling with seasonal allergies and need help identifying the best treatment plan to manage your symptoms, stop by our conveniently located urgent care center and meet with a highly trained member of our team. Whether your nose has been running for a week and you’re tired of it or you woke up feeling under the weather and need to talk to a medical professional about your options, we’re here for you.

When it comes to allergy treatment, the first thing to remember is that if you are having an allergic reaction and feel your lips swelling or your throat closing, call 911 or get yourself to the local emergency room immediately. Anaphylaxis is a serious medical condition and you require immediate attention. However, if you are struggling with seasonal allergies like hay fever or you have a mild reaction to food or another stimuli, the allergy treatment that we offer in Effingham, Taylorville, and Litchfield, is appropriate. In only about an hour we can have you in and out the door and no prior appointment is necessary, although we do offer our ZipPASS system if you know exactly when you’ll be visiting our state-of-the-art urgent care facility and wish to secure your spot in line.

While allergy treatment options vary depending on the patient, a few treatments our team may recommend include:

  • The use of over-the-counter anti-histamines
  • Controlled medications that feature pseudoephedrine
  • Steroidal nasal sprays
  • Bed rest
  • The consumption of plenty of fluids
  • Methods for avoiding common allergens
  • And other similar options

If you are tired of dealing with congestion, a runny nose, a persistent pressure headache, or any of the other common symptoms of allergies, stop by Central Illinois Urgent Care and learn more about your options. We maintain extended business hours and are open seven days a week for your convenience. We even have a selection of medications available on site, potentially saving you a trip to the pharmacy on your way home. Contact us for additional information about the allergy treatment options we gladly offer in Effingham, Taylorville, and Litchfield, as well as our many other healthcare services.

Patient Reviews

I have been in here several times as my family doctor is located in Springfield. I have always had an excellent experience. Highly recommend.

Friendly staff who really care about your health.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place: from the staff, the cleanliness, the professional attitudes, the no-wait time, the kind and caring Dr. Toofan, to the sticker on the way out... excellent! Very impressed.

Jesse M.


Love love this place!! I have been taking my daughter here when she is sick since she was 3 months old! They give me what I need and if you don't need it they don't! I trust them very much! This place is a lot more money then other places in regards to my insurance coverage, but you can't buy trust!

I can't give enough stars to this AMAZING place! We got in and out within 30 minutes. Staff was so polite and nice. Dr. Beth was great with my little one. Not only was our experience in the facility a great one, but Dr. Beth personally called me the next day to check on my Baby. That meant a lot to me. I have a hard time trusting Drs that aren't our regular one, but I definitely will be revisiting here if ever needed.

I just left here and although I'm sick with BRONCHITIS my soul was happy to have Dr. Toofan, Paul MD as my provider today. He was very attentive and friendly. The staff was also amazingly friendly. The facility is absolutely gorgeous for an express care clinic!!!

My little one was sick, whilst we were out of town on a Sunday. I had seen this Urgent Care from the interstate & decided to see if they were open. They were & even opened the door a few min. early to let us in. The office was clean, & the staff was very kind & courteous. Dr. Toofan was great with my daughter (he has kids) & got us in and out very quickly. They had her RX available there, if we didn't want to go to a pharmacy. Having just received a call (just over 24 hours from the initial visit) from the Dr. (not from the receptionist or even a nurse) to see how things were going, I felt that a review was definitely deserved. This is exactly what an Urgent Care should be!

I prefer Taylorville Urgent Care over the ER. You are greeted the second you come through the door and I have never had to wait longer than 5 minutes, if that to be seen. The staff is very friendly, well experienced, professional, and knowledgeable. They are very thorough in their workup and treatment of your health issue. Further, medial supplies, if needed, are provided for your injuries that the hospital will not provide. The staff seems to be genuinely concerned about providing the best care possible. I consider this service to be state of the art. I'm extremely happy they are here. This care facility is definitely an asset to Taylorville.

Thank you Bethany for your help today! The options of getting prescriptions filled there was definitely cheaper on me. The staff was all great as well this was my first visit.

Cathy R.
