Do You Need Sore Throat Treatment in Hamden, CT?

A sore throat is a common symptom of colds, the flu, and allergies and will go away on its own after a few days. At-home remedies, such as gargling with salt water, drinking warm liquids, and sucking on throat lozenges, can help relieve the pain. But if your sore throat has lasted for longer than a week, is accompanied by a fever of 101 degrees or higher, or is accompanied by a rash or joint pain, come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Hamden, Connecticut, for sore throat treatment.

How Is a Sore Throat Treated?

A sore throat is often caused by a viral infection that doesn’t respond to antibiotics. However, most patients who come to us seeking sore throat treatment have a more serious throat infection called strep throat. In this case, antibiotics are typically required to clear up the infection. Failing to promptly treat strep throat can result in more serious medical complications, especially in children. That’s why it’s never a bad idea to come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care to have your sore throat checked out, even if it’s only been a few days. We can perform a rapid strep test to determine the cause of your swollen throat.

Why Choose PhysicianOne Urgent Care?

"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."
