Is It a Sore Throat or Strep Throat?
One of our first steps in the sore throat treatment process is to determine if you are dealing with a more serious bacterial infection called strep throat. While sore throats and step throats have similar symptoms, there are a few key differentiators. Some of the common signs of strep throat include:
- White spots or patches at the back of the throat
- Swollen or red tonsils
- Ear infection
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Not having any other cold symptoms, such as a runny nose, congestion, or cough
We’ll likely order a rapid strep test to diagnose your condition, and since we have an on-site clinical lab, we can have the results ready within minutes. After that, we’ll develop a comprehensive treatment plan aimed at helping you feel better faster.
