Zug: where to go for treatment on public holiday?

Hi

My gf has her eye swollen from a sting bee and she thought it would pass but today it's even worse.

Where can we go today in Zug to get a medical opinion? Would a pharmacy be OK? Our GP is closed and next option I see is the Baar hospital for emergencies but seems like a stretch.

Any immediate advice welcome!

P.S Also how do I find online which pharmacy is open today?

Re: Zug: where to go for treatment on public holiday?

Yes were just on our way to do that, any idea how to know which one will be open today? Our first idea is Metalli but is there a website where we can find which one is on call/open today? It's a bank holiday in Zug today.

Re: Zug: where to go for treatment on public holiday?

If she was stung on the head above the nose, in a non fleshy area, then the sting will make the body create fluids, and her face will swell up, even closing the eye lid. As she has not collapsed, there is no real danger now, as long as her throat remains free to breathe.

You can only wait now, it might take 3 to 5 days for the swelling to reduce, but you can buy some cream, and maybe anti histamine tablets to reduce the itching. Go to any pharmacy and there will be information on the door, telling you which pharmacy is open today. All of mainland Europe has a holiday today.

Re: Zug: where to go for treatment on public holiday?

the pharmacy in Zug Bahnhof is open every day, including Sundays and holidays. Or go to the Kantonsspital in Baar, they deal with minor injuries "out-of-hours"

Re: Zug: where to go for treatment on public holiday?

Thank you all, that's where we ended up going and was very quick and friendly.

Although a 240chf bill for 10minutes and some antibiotics was a bit steep!

Awesome advice guys and girls, thanks again!
