Providing Sore Throat Treatment Services at Our Brookfield, CT, Urgent Care Center

Sore Throat Treatment Brookfield CTDo you have a sore throat? If at-home sore throat remedies aren’t providing the relief you need, you may need to seek professional care. It’s especially important to get a professional opinion if you’ve had a sore throat for more than 10 days, if you’re experiencing severe pain, or if you have a fever greater than 101 degrees. Luckily, if you’re in Brookfield, Connecticut, or the surrounding area, you can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for sore throat treatment. We’re proud to be certified by the Urgent Care Association and affiliated with the Yale New Haven Health System.

What Can Cause a Sore Throat?

In some cases, a sore throat is caused by a bacterial infection known as “strep throat.” In addition to throat soreness, strep throat can cause a fever, pain when swallowing, swollen tonsils, white patches or streaks in the throat, small red spots on the back of the roof of the mouth, and swollen lymph nodes in the neck. Strep throat treatment commonly requires a prescription for antibiotics.

Of course, strep throat isn’t the only thing that can cause a sore throat. Other causes include viral infections (like a cold or the flu), allergies, dry air, and various irritants. An experienced provider like the ones at PhysicianOne Urgent Care will be able to diagnose your condition and let you know exactly what’s causing your symptoms.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
