Is It a Sore Throat, or Is It Strep Throat?
While throat soreness is often caused by a virus—and, as such, can generally be treated at home—a bacterial infection is the cause of strep throat. If your sore throat is accompanied by a fever, severe pain when swallowing, red spots on the roof of the mouth, or swollen tonsils, you may be dealing with strep throat. At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we can perform a rapid strep test to determine the cause of your symptoms and then, if appropriate, prescribe antibiotics to clear up the infection.
Is It COVID-19?
COVID-19 is an infection that is caused by a coronavirus strain called SARS-CoV-2, and one of its main symptoms is a sore throat. It makes sense that you might be worried you’ve contracted COVID-19 if you’re dealing with throat soreness—and especially so if you’re dealing with any of the other symptoms of strep throat, like having a fever. Thankfully, PhysicianOne Urgent Care can help. We can evaluate your symptoms during a virtual visit and then register you for a COVID-19 test at our urgent care center in Derby if deemed necessary. Our COVID-19 tests take place curbside and you should have your results within a few days.
