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